24-year-old Inter Milan star linked with summer move to Arsenal
Federico Dimarco is attracting the interest of Arsenal, as the Inter Milan defender has emerged as a transfer target for the Gunners. The Spanish manager has been widening his search for a new left-back to compete for different positions as Arsenal ponder an approach for the 24-year-old defender.
Dimarco finally has a campaign under his belt in which he can measure his progress at San Siro. For years since Federico was promoted from the youth sides, the defender has been sent on numerous loans. Finally, under Inzaghi has the left-back gotten an opportunity, and he has flourished.
Despite making some important games in the 2021/22 campaign, he is yet to cement his position in the team, as the Nerazzurri narrowly lost out their Serie A crown to rivals Milan. Out of his 32 matches in the league, just 13 were starts, which shows there may not be enough trust in him to become the first choice.
Moreover, the winter arrival of Gosens made matters difficult for the Italian defender to lock a starting berth in the side chasing the title. However, Simone Inzaghi considers him a top-notch squad footballer, as the coach selected the player to play as a left-sided centre-back in numerous matches in the season.
Arsenal have strong players in both positions, and the Italian is not expected to dislodge either Tierney or Gabriel from their respective roles.
