Inter Milan Striker Torn Between A Move To Another Serie A Club And Moving To Saudi Arabia

Written By Onyeka Daniel

The 2024-25 Serie A Season is expected to kick off on the 17th of August and with less than 4 months to that date, clubs will be putting plans in place to have a formidable squad and for the newly promoted clubs, it’s a bigger task as they try to strike a balance between maintaining their current squad and injecting experienced players.

This is to help them avoid dropping back into the lower divisions, where they came from. For Como, who are newly promoted to Serie A and coach Cesc Fabregas, they’ve identified one player that they believe can help them, so the coach has reportedly asked his former Barcelona teammate Alexis Sanchez to join the squad.

The forward Is a free agent, as his contract with Inter will come to a natural close on June 30. Currently on international duty in Chile, the 35-year-old has no intention of retiring yet and would like to remain in Serie A for next season. He still managed to contribute four goals and five assists in 33 competitive games for the Nerazzurri.

While Parma had been linked, Sky Sport Italia transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio claims that former Arsenal and Manchester United man could join another team promoted from Serie B this summer. Como got the step up under coach Fabregas and he would appreciate a reunion with El Nino Maravilla, as the pair were teammates at Barcelona from 2011 to 2014.

Considering Como is also in the Lombardy region, it’s entirely possible that Alexis Sanchez would not even have to move house if he joined this new club. There is also the option of moving to Saudi Arabia, where the salary is great, or a move to a South American club, maybe in Argentina or Mexico.

Apparently, he will decide on his future after the Copa America tournament. There’s another Inter striker that’s also being reported to be headed for the exit door, Marko Arnautovic, and even though the Austrian has come out to debunk the rumors, his exit could pave for the signing of a new striker in the summer, someone like Albert Gudmundsson.

The former Bologna striker has been linked with a move to Fiorentina, and he could be tempted by the prospect of playing regular football again after finding it hard to displace either one of Lautaro Martinez and Marcus Thuram for the Nerazzurri and the coming of Mehdi Taremi is set to reduce his playing time further.


Fabregas believes that Monaco midfielder Youssouf Fofana is heading for AC Milan this summer, with incoming head coach Paulo Fonseca keen on bringing him to Italy. It appears certain that Fonseca will be the next manager, and now the management will be called upon to strengthen the squad to give Fonseca the opportunity to implement his style of place.

In this sense, Milan are looking for a defensive midfielder in addition to a striker and a centre-back. The team struggled for balance in the season that has just concluded, and some believe it is due to the lack of a natural defensive midfielder.

The Rossoneri have been repeatedly linked with a move for Fofana, a France international who is believed to be available in a cut-price deal due to the fact his deal runs out in a year.Fabregas spoke to the BBC’s Planet Premier League podcast and revealed his belief that Fofana would be a good fit for English football but that he seems to be going elsewhere.

“I know him. I played with him. [He] is a very dynamic and a strong player. Good on the ball. A modern type of player; aggressive, can jump, he’s box to box,” he said. “I really like Fofana and I think he fits very well with the Premier League style. Funnily enough, I never heard about Man United. I heard he’s going to AC Milan because Fonseca is probably going to go there from France and they know each other. So, let’s see.” He further added.
