After the successful signing of Matteo Politano from Sassuolo on a loan deal Inter make another signing days later as Inter land Juventus defender/midfielder. Inter and the Suning Group continue to bring in talent from various clubs to help with the lack of squad depth Inter have been struggling with for the past few seasons. Inter have been mainly going after midfielders to help create squad depth around Icardi and Nainggolan to help with creating scoring chances and to help fill the voids left by Rafinha as Inter lost the chance to sign him due to the strict financial fair play rules and the possibility of losing Valero, Perisic and Brozovic though it has been rumored that Perisic and Brozovic will stay throughout this upcoming season at least for the time being. They have also done a great job by signing Politano from Sassuolo as a possible replacement of Candreva on the right wing as Candreva as of the past two seasons has been struggling to get anything going in ways of scoring and opening scoring chances. So this was a massive move on their part. But the Suning Group however have brought in Stefan Devrij from Lazio who is great at getting the ball away from opponents and does a great job at keeping the ball away from his teams half. But due to the loss of Cancelo to Juventus Inter need a player to take over the right left back position so as of the past few months Inter have been in talks with Juventus to bring in one of their defenders who can play in the midfield if needed depending on the situation. Because with loss of Cancelo this means the D’Ambrosio will more than likely move to the right back position which leaves the left back spot vacant to fill the void Inter have been in talks over Juventus Ghaninian left back Kwadwo Asamoah who agreed to join Inter in May which became official July 2nd on a free transfer after his contract with Juventus ended at the end of the campaign.

Known for being versatile and hardworking Asomah can be used in a variety of areas. He is mostly used in defensive areas primarily as a left back and in the center back positions. Due to his strength and stamina and being able to read the game he is good in the defensive position as he is good at winning the ball and keeping the ball out of his teams half. But offensively he is usually plays as wide midfielder on the left side. Due to his agility and skill also with the ability to make a strong attacks he is good at creating scoring chances and getting the ball to his teammates to help in assist situations. He is very tactical and will do whatever is needed to win the match. The area where they primarily can use him is on left back and central midfield as they need a player in those two areas. Since Inter lost Rafinha and with the possibility of D’Ambrosio needing to be moved back to right back he would make a great addition on left back especially with being stronger on the left of the pitch. But due to his versatility wherever he is placed he will shine.
