Don't have one.
Well, lots of work to do. I'm think Inter is really going to miss Perisic.
That's the biggest question mark of the season for me, how will we look without him, coz it's plain obvious we ain't having a player of his quality on either sides.

Also, lautaro has to find some way to improve his finishing, he can't just rely on instinct and volleys...

Precisely why Dybala was a massive loss. Perisic created 90% of our offense last year. As good as Gossens is, he's a different type of attacking wingback. Gonna be a problem this year.
80% of our chances came from the LuLa 2 seasons ago, Perisic did most times nothing, maybe Hakimi some assist and goal. We dont need Perisic now that the lula is back!

lukaku can open spaces with he's speed, many serie a defenders can't hold him. Perisic was a brilliant player for us, no doubt. But some times useless if you have Dzeko upfront and generelly a weak forward like last year.

Nah but it’s clear as day to see we’re lacking something on the wingbacks. I would rather we get Kostic + Acerbi than get Milenkovic

That's simplifying what we had that season - Eriksen, LuLa, Hakimi, Perišić. Now we have only the striker pair and the worse version of others.

That was why Perisic stole the attention in the last season. In addition to that, Dumfries on the right side was not enough reliable for his teammates to penetrate as Perisic did. As a result, Perisic got balls more often than the other side, which indirectly impacted his contribution stats for us. Talking about this game, We didn't lack chances after the substitutes came in instead the players could create more goal-scoring opportunities.

many here maybe forgot that our duo striker was statistically one of the best in europe, totally diffrent from what we had last season. Im not sure if having only perisic is better

Completely different players, Perisic is hard working and runs miles after miles, no matter how much we can accuse him of being a bit of a one trick pony at times, he always made up for it in pure work ethic and die with his boots on attitude.

Dybala would never have that effect. To get Dybala to work also would require him to be a much more integral part of the offensive play then what was realistically going to happen at Inter. Best he was going to be a rotational player with Hakan and a substitute for Martinez, at Inter he would find it much more difficult to be a starter with the players we have at disposal up front then Juventus the past couple of years.

Also Dybala isn’t what he was 4 years ago. I seriously don’t get all the hype surrounding Dybala, I for one am more then pleased we aren’t the one who got him, I prayed for it several times. Dybala would just have been the next high wage player proposed to the fans as a saviour but like all others failing in doing so, his was frankly more likely going to be the next Sanchez then the next Lukaku. Nothing he has done the last couple of years had me convinced of him actually making any sort of difference.
