Can't believe I'm saying this but we absolutely can't allow to lose Perisic. Not now, not after every shittiest of shits has happened or is about to happen.

No right side without Hakimi, no left side without Perisic (however unconvincing he was) with a coach which requires exactly those players....

Better hope Dimarco is a late bloomer. And the blooming is of charts.

If we can't get Emerson Royal to replace Hakimi, I wouldn't mind a punt on this German kid Ridle Baku. He has had a great EuroU21 with 2 goals and 3 assists, which is awesome for a RB. Just assisted in the final. He plays for Perisic's former club, and has 6 goals and 8 assists in the Bundesliga last season. Between him and Darmian, we should have RWB covered, and hope Baku develops into a crack.

Transfermarkt has his price at 22m, but he will probably cost a lot more. Perhaps we can't afford him. Or maybe we can sweeten the deal by returning Perisic.

I had this guy in mind when i was trying to think about possible Hakimi replacements we could realistically sign. His Bundesliga stats are a bit deceiving as most of his goals and assists came when he was playing as a winger. He started the season as a rb but he was poor in defense so Glasner decided to move him higher and play Mbabu as rb. He has the usual traits of a wingback. Too attacking to be a rb and his end product isn't good enough to become a top winger. In theory he could play as a wingback. He needs to work on his defense but he looks promising. But he has never played in a back 3 formation. I fear he would need time to adjust.

Unlike the left side, there are some good options on the right. Obviously not at the level of Hakimi but good enough to play for Inter in our current situation. The real question is how much we can afford spending for Hakimi replacement. If we're looking for a low cost signing (20m or lower) then the options are very limited.

Who cares? How is that related to this thread?

It's related because we are apparently having business with Chelsea.

How old is he, and is her versatile?

I would hate to be stuck on a player who cant play in a back 4/3 and is only a RB and not a RB/RWB

Perišić is actually first who needs to go of all players with big salaries.Guy is all about his paycheck,his contact expires next summer and there is zero chance he will be useful in new season if he don't get that new solid contract.Just let him go.

I think you should be saying "Thank you Inter, but its time". Mainly because this shit club offers extensions or keeps the players that are least needed.

Next Rumor: After convincing Young and Vecino, Inzaghi want Perisic to stay too.

Sky DE are saying we've agreed terms with Kostic, and are awaiting to finalise the Hakimi sale to make an offer to Eintracht. I imagine we'll try to throw Lazaro in there.

I was kinda hoping we'd have both Kostic and Hakimi T_T

Unfortunately Sky DE is probably not the most reliable sources. Let's hope it's still true.

Yeah. Sky Deutschland isn't really a good source. If this is confirmed by Kicker, then we can start taking the rumour seriously.

Our moves this summer haven’t made sense if we resign Young, Rano and D’Am….

Di Marzio - Inter meeting with agent of Emerson Royal. He is the first choice to replace Hakimi.

I think we can't complain if we end with Emerson Royal and Kostic if we sell only Hakimi

That would be great but sadly i can't see that happening. Di Marzio claims Emerson Royal could be available for around 25m while Eintracht want 20-25m for Kostic. If you got both then you would need to sell another top player in order to reach the magic number of 70m profit. If they get Emerson Royal they will probably try to sign Palmieri on loan or another low cost lb. If they get Kostic they will probably go for a low cost rb.

For me the best case scenario would be:

-you sell Lautaro for 80-90m and Perisic for 10m
-you keep Hakimi, you sign Depay on a free and you sign Kostic for 20-25

And then i wake up from the dream. :D
