That's a heavy price for a backup player.
I agree that they are similar players, but Gosens is far superior to Dumfries in finishing.Gosens is just average wing-back but good at finishing similar to Dumfries. Dumfries was good last season because we had Perisic who can beat defender and send dangerous ball to far post. Gosens will never work in this current Inter unless we find some good crosser RWB like Perisic or Candreva in January.
GdS: Schalke are keen to sign Inter wingback Robin Gosens on loan in the January transfer window, but Inter would prefer to sell him outright.
Was it a dry loan only? Or perhaps option to buy?GdS say he rejected the loan offer from Schalke and wants to convince Inzaghi now.
I have respect for Robin and root for him to get back at top level.As reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport, Schalke recently made an offer for Gosens, keen to pick up the German in January, but the player turned down their approach, wanting to prove himself at Inter.
The Nerazzurri would only consider a definitive sale and are not open to any loan offers for the 28-year-old.
Gosens believes the Inter move to be a once in a lifetime chance and he doesn’t want to let the opportunity pass him by, so he’ll be working hard to show his best in the second half of this season.
On the other hand there are Euros in a year and a half. I guess he'll try for the rest of this season here, and if he doesn't play more he'll finally leave.I mean the time to leave was in the beginning of the season when he could have fought for his place in the national team.
