Why Ramires Would Be A Great Signing For Inter Milan

Inter Milan are one of the clubs who is fighting to reclaim their spot amongst the European elite. They are currently 2nd in the Serie A table and are unbeaten in the league, with the likes of Ivan Perisic and Marcelo Brozovic putting in excellent performances every game. Conversely, that also means that they are likely to lose both of them to bigger clubs sooner rather than later and to that end, the club is now looking to reinforce their midfield in the January window.

Former Chelsea star Ramires is being linked to the Italian club with several sources reporting that Inter’s technical coordinator Walter Sabatini is set to travel to China, where the Brazilian plies his trade with Jiangsu Suning. Despite being out of action right now due to an ankle injury, Ramires has been in fine form for the Chinese outlet this season, scoring 7 goals setting up 3 more in 23 appearances in central midfield. The 30-year-old made quite a reputation for himself in Chelsea, winning multiple titles, including a Champions League in 2012.

Ideally deployed as a no-nonsense defensive midfielder who excels in the role of a destroyer, Ramires can also be used as a box-to-box midfielder who can contribute both in attack and in defense. Inter currently lack someone who can excel in that role and this might be one of the reasons as to why he is being courted.

The San Siro club’s management is eager to win the title and while they have started well, they will have to overcome Mauricio Sarri’s irrepressible Napoli and defending champions Juventus over the course of a long, tumultuous season and that asks for someone who is well-conversed with the demands of top-level European competitions.

Interestingly, the Asian club had dismissed previous reports of Ramires joining Inter as “nonsense”, but both the clubs are owned by Suning Group owner Zhang Jindong which will probably play a massive part in deciding where the player ends up.

His agent has already warned the Italian outfit that several top clubs have already sent in their offers for him and that it would cost them quite a bit to let go of a player who is valued highly by Jiangsu Suning’s manager Fabio Capello. However, if the transfer does take place in the winter, it would be an excellent move for Inter as they would add much-needed steel and experience to their squad, which would make them the favourites for the Serie A title.
