Bergomi Eyeing January Reinforcements Already

Reports have come out that Inter scouts have supposedly been following 4 big name players that could potentially end up at the San Siro in January to strengthen Inter's title bid. Two of the players are young central midfielders, Isco of Malaga and Marco Verratti of PSG, the third is big Werder Bremen defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos, and the fourth is Denmark and FC Twente striker Nicklas Helenius. Bergomi is expected to sign one of the two central midfielders to partner Andrea Poli, and the Greek center back is expected to provide cover and compete for both the center back and right back spots. Helenius, who knows Bergomi from their relationship at the Denmark camp, is expected to add depth to an attack that has sorely missed an injured Ademilson.

Isco




Isco is one of the brightest talents in Spanish football. He is a central midfielder capable of both an attacking midfield and deeper midfield role, and he is well known for his dribbling, passing, technique, and flair. He is enduring a difficult time in his career however, as his club, Malaga, have been playing in Liga Adelante for the last two years. Understandably, Isco has turned in a transfer request, and due to a 20m euro release clause in his contract, will be sold at that price to whoever will match it. Isco is expected to play next to Poli if he joins, but critics claim that Isco has underperformed in that role and prefers to play behind the striker.

Marco Verratti




The second center mid on Inter's shortlist is PSG man Marco Verratti. The 21 year old Italian has amassed a mere 11 appearances for the first team in Paris since his move from Pescara, instead being forced to play in only the reserves. This has come as a shock to many football fans, as Verratti already possesses excellent passing and dribbling skills, making him a very versatile and dynamic midfielder. Verratti is currently available for loan, but it is thought that a bid of 16m euros (similar to what Inter paid for Andrea Poli) would be enough to pry away the youngster from PSG. Verratti is the favorite to sign over Isco, and many Nerazzurri fans would love to see him in the black and blue.

Sokratis Papastathopoulos




The hilariously named Werder Bremen defender is at the top of Giuseppe Bergomi's list to strengthen Inter's defense. Sokratis boasts incredible marking and tackling skills while also being a physical beast at the back. Despite strong form from Juan Jesus and Andrea Ranocchia this season, Bergomi is said to want more depth in the position instead of just filling in with young players like Ibrahima Mbaye and Emerson Luiz. Papastathopoulos is the perfect man to provide this depth due to his experience at the top level of football and his extraordinary defensive skills. Bremen are reported to want at least 12m euros to allow Inter to approach their player.

Nicklas Helenius




The final man that Inter are reportedly looking to bring to the San Siro is FC Twente striker Nicklas Helenius. The 23 year old striker has scored 9 goals in 17 appearances this season and has started to draw attention to himself as a top finisher. Giuseppe Bergomi already also manages Helenius at the Denmark national team, where Helenius has recently played second fiddle to an on-song Nicklas Bendtner. There is said to be a great respect among the two, and Helenius said he would be happy to play for both club and country under Bergomi.
Verratti did absolutely wonderful for me at FC Bayern so he could do a job for Inter! Hope you get Isco too. Good luck with your transfer targets!

I will only buy one or the other, tbh, and I'm leaning toward Verratti right now, maybe because he did so well for you :P Thanks for reading :)
A great update there mate. I bought Isco when I played with Bayern and he was immense with Kroos. Definitely a worthwhile buy and Sokratis Papastathopoulos is a good player to increase depth! Good luck in getting them

You were close, and thanks, not signed yet, just interested in them.
Will you be going for all four? :P

Nope, one of the two central mids for sure, the other two are possibilities that I am very interested in but not certain of.
ISCO and Verrati :D i'd say try to get both of them and may they be the fresh blood Inter needs for even more succes

I don't think both is financially possible, unfortunately, though I'm certainly hoping for one!

I might just, he is listed by request and might be cheaper... ;)
