Still need CMs...Coutinho is an attacking mid and Obi is being used on the wing. I'd prefer Obi slot into CM though. Currently Inter have 3 CMs for two positions in the 3-4-3: Motta, Cambiasso, Deki. IMO Deki is no longer in the physical condition to be a reliable starter. Hopefully as time goes on and Nagatomo/Maicon are healthy, Obi will move to CM. Alvarez will become CM but he needs to add strength, and IMO, is only ready for the lower table squads. Inter need to sign a CM that has good stamina, a nice shot, and adequate passing ability...basically a younger version of Deki.

True, but his position is still in question. Will he be used as an outside mid or play down the middle. He best position is probably down the middle but his pace allows him to play wide. A very versatile player that needs to get a definite position so that he can continue to hone his skills. Being able to have an attacking force through the middle that can assist Sneijder is something almost all of us want.

No Milan player
speaking about genoa, why are we more interested in kucka and not veloso? kucka has only played 6 months in italy. although veloso is not much a senior but i thought veloso is more of an established player.

Veloso was garbage last year and we can't afford to waste 15mil on Casemiro.

We've only see Alvarez in nothing but friendlies and one semi-friendly against Milan. Let's not be so hasty in labeling him as "only ready for lower table squads" :palm: Jesus people, get a grip. I do agree we need a CM who can add some creativity but let's no write off a player who hasn't even played a game of Serie A football.

So you think Alvarez, in his current physical condition and form is ready to play against the big boys? Much like Coutinho, they are not ready for prime time. IMO, Obi is the only youngster ready to be playing first team football. But hey, lets go throw a skinny 23 year old who hardly played in Argentina out against the best of Serie A. Fucking brilliant idea.

I don't know if he's ready mate. Maybe he is, maybe he isn't. I'm just not writing off a player because he didn't rip shit up against Juve or Milan in the all-important Trofeo Cup.

Neither am I. I think he needs to develop strength before he becomes a prominent fixture in the starting 11. Thus I think experience playing against the lower table squads this season will be good for him. I think we had a slight misunderstanding on what I meant by lower table squads. I meant he should get playing time against Serie A's Atatanta's, Lecce's, Novara's, etc, not that he is only a good enough player for the likes of Catania. Get him some experience against some lower tier teams and give him time to build strength in the gym.

Yeah I took that the wrong way. Thought you wanted him loaned out to Novarra or some shit :p What you said makes sense. We'll see how Gasp uses him this season. In my limited opinion of Ricky, he doesn't have the speed playing out wide so I prefer to see him in CM somewhere. And yes, he does need some muscles.

I'm very disapointed that we're not interested in Guarin...He is excelent Box to Box midfielder...Midfield with Guarin, Sneijder, Cambiasso and Motta for example, would be full of class in attack and very solid in defence...

We could get Guarin + Forlan for around 20m€, and if we would bring Tevez on loan, that would be fantastic...but it wont happen...We are chasin KUČKA :(

Why are people comparing Stankovic to Kucka, when Deki arrived at Inter he was considered as one of the best midfielders in Serie A, kind of how people talk about Hamsik today. As for Kucka he barely gets mentioned let alone with the likes of Hamsik, Montolivo etc.

Because they are similar. Kucka will never be what Deki was 5-6 years ago. But he is also better than Deki atm...

That's a broad statement given that Kucka has played 6 months in Serie A for Genoa.

That's the thing, he hasnt played much, and showed he is decent player. I think he can only get better once he is fully known with the Italian football...

Of course i might be wrong, but that's what it looks like to me.. Only god knows.

Well hopefully indeed, if we pay half of Viviano + 3-4m€ for half of him. :)
