Bologna have sparked an interest in signing Inter defender Federico Dimarco in the upcoming January transfer window according to a report in today’s print edition of Corriere dello Sport. Due to Mitchell Dijks continued absence due to a foot injury, the Rossoblu club are on the lookout for a new left back and Dimarco could be the man that they go in for.

The young full back has struggled to force his way into Inter manager Antonio Conte’s plans this season and has been limited to just one substitute appearance all season for a total of seven minutes on the field. Inter, as per the report, would be willing to loan the 22-year-old, who has a contract with the club until the end of the 2022/23 season, to enable him to get more regular game time and continue his development as a player. They would also be open to including an option to buy in any loan move that may be forthcoming.

» Let DiMarco on LOAN to play, sign Alonso on LOAN with option to buy, send Biraghi back in summer. :datass:

I'll start him against Fiorentina. He can't be worst than shitty Biraghi

I wonder how it feels to wake up every day as a footballer and know you're so mediocre that you can't even replace Cristiano Beraghi

Funny how people shit on Biraghi when he is way better than Asamoah. How many sitters has our strikers missed that came from Biraghi? 1-2 per game. Asamoah on the other hand is yet to make a decent cross

That was like a top3 performance from a wingback this season. Good to see.

Good game by that man today. Knows when and where to run, has a decent cross. Would like to give him a chance instead of Biraghi but Conte thinks other way I guess (probable Spinazolla arriving).

Wish we would give him a shot in a Serie A match so we could tell if we had something.

I have a feeling he got a start today so that Inter can showcase him to buying clubs. Based on this performance, I can see a 5m+ offer coming.

That said, with Spinazzola coming here I would rather see Biraghi leave than Dimarco.

This cross to Lazaro just before the 3-0 was so juicy.

https://streamja.com/2RoB

I've always been skeptical about him because he hasn't really done much in his career to justify any expectation. He's also got an injury record having missed large chunks of the two previous seasons.

But one thing that's been visible for a while is that he has a very cultured left foot and he's always looking to make use of it. I really like that. Even when things don't come off, you can just tell when a player possesses some degree of talent in his feet.

You know what's funny? We complain about our shit set pieces and make fun of Politano's corners always failing to clear the near man. Eriksen has been mocked and facepalmed by Spurs fans for the exact same thing during his 2019 year-long slump. But even with both of them sucking at set pieces in the past year, you can clearly see that Eriksen possesses a skillfulness that Politano doesn't.

Whether it's set-pieces or just routine passing/crossing/shooting, there's just something intangible in the body movement and the way a players foot makes contact with the ball. The back-lift, the follow-through, the striking angle and foot positioning etc. Some players have the automatic sense to know to manipulate their movement and their contact with the ball in order to make it go where they want.

Watch how horizontally Dimarco hits the ball in that great switch to Lazaro. Watch his follow-through after he strikes the ball. That all controls how perfectly that ball travels.

Obvious as it sounds, some guys just have a heightened sense of how to strike a football. Dimarco has it. (For the record, Candreva definitely has it too. He's just been mentally broken for 2 years.)

Dimarco's scored some great free kicks for the Italy youth sides and that screamer against us last season of course. Even in his crap handful of pre-season matches, there was the occasional moment where he'd thread a beautiful curling cross, diagonally through the defending markers.

Obviously a having good foot does not make him otherwise a good player. And obviously I'm not suggesting he's Messi 2.0 either. Just saying that his cultured left foot is blatantly obvious and that it's refreshing to see an articulate passer of the ball stand out among our dickhead WB's.

As thatdude says, I wish we could see more of him to properly determine the other aspects of his game and get a better idea of his potential value to us. Sadly, it looks like he'll be pissed off to Verona as soon as one of these Young/Spinazzola fuckwits arrive.

I suspect the reason Conte doesn't trust him much is due to physical reasons. Dimarco doesn't seem particularly fast, powerful or physical in his approach (pretty common for technical players). He's also known for fading a little bit and the saying that "the camera adds 10 pounds" is true for Dimarco because he looks a tad pudgy and soft at times :lol: Could do with dropping a few kgs IMO.

I think he was very good in preseason, and vs Cagliari he did better than Biraghi ever did don't know why Conte won't pull the trigger on him.

Cagliari match is like zero proof of anything. They were just horribly bad.

I'm gonna trust conte's judgment on Di Marco. If he was good, he would be playing more often.

I would like to just accept everything without proofs and evidence, but then that just won’t be me.

I tried that with 9/11 and came to the conclusion that it was a hologram.
