As summer transfer discussions and rumors start to heat up, a new name as surfaced as a potential full-back option for Inter Milan.

Atalanta’s Robin Gosins has emerged as a potential target to help reinforce Inter Milan’s back line of defense.

The 24-year-old German has spent the last two years with Atalanta and is helping the team make a push for its first Champions League qualification this season.

During the current campaign, Gosens has made 32 appearances across all competitions for the club – including five during Europa League qualifying. Over that time, he has scored three goals and added two assists to his tally – including a goal in Atalanta’s win over Fiorentina in the Coppa Italia semifinals.

This season, Atalanta has allowed 43 goals and amassed a goal differential of +28 – third-best in Serie A, just ahead of Inter.

Gosens started his career with Elten before moving to Bocholt in Germany. In 2009, he moved to VFL Rhede’s youth squads and made his first, first-team appearance with FC Dordrecnt in The Netherlands’ second division.

He returned to Vitesse’s youth program in 2015 before heading to Heracles Almelo in 2015. He was transferred to Atalanta in 2017 for a €1.03 million transfer fee.

His current market value is around €8 million and Atalanta would likely seek around €10 million to move him to another team.

A benefit to Inter is the fact that Gosens is represented by the Seg Agency, which is the same agency that represents Stefan de Vrij.
