Coming into this transfer window, fans had reason to doubt if the team could pull off any significant transfers after receiving constant reminders of the restrictions imposed by Financial Fair Play. This transfer empathetically puts those fears to rest, as Suning have again shown their persistence in building a side worthy of the uniform. So, after seemingly endless speculation surrounding the transfer of Roberto Gagliardini, Inter Milan have gotten their man. The deal is a year and a half loan with an obligation to purchase.

The Atalanta youth product has been instrumental to Atalanta's surprising surge up the table this season. An unfortunate downside to Atalanta's shock emergence, (for them) is that a number of players essential to their team are being courted by bigger clubs. Atalanta's loss has officially become Inter's gain as Roberto Gagliardini will now represent the future of Inter. Inter have set young Italians with potential to be special as their ideal transfer targets for the future. Gagliardini fits this mold perfectly and is an example of what is to be expected in further windows.

Last season, Roberto Gagliardini played on loan for Vicenza and had not previously played a Serie A minute until May of last year. Roberto, much like Atalanta, has been a complete revelation in the league. The central midfielder has slotted right into former Inter coach Gian Piero Gasperini's system and shown his immense ability. So far this season, in his thirteen Serie A appearances, Gagliardini has contributed two assists and has been a consistent performer. Roberto without a doubt has a bright future ahead of him and will offer loads of talent to the team if he is given the opportunity to shine. This is another signing of intent from Inter's owners and will surely go down as a transfer to remember.
