More than one Nerazzurri defender among possible departures

Inter Milan, which will play a match at the San Siro on Monday evening (Jan. 23) against Empoli in the 19th day of Serie A, may have to deal with a revolution in the backline before the January soccer market closes.

In fact, more than one defender among those at Simone Inzaghi’s disposal is among the possible departures: first and foremost certainly Milan Skriniar who, according to the French press, has already given his word to Paris Saint-Germain for a transfer, which could also be finalized before the summer; the other name is that of Denzel Dumfries, struggling after the World Cup in Qatar and overtaken in the hierarchies by Matteo Darmian, always a starter in 2023. The Dutch outfielder has more than one admirer in the Premier League, with Graham Potter’s Chelsea in the front row.

Among possible replacements for the Slovakian, the profile of Roma’s Chris Smalling has emerged, while for the flank the first option, in case of a departure of Dumfries, is Tajon Buchanan, a Canadian national team player owned by Club Brugge.
