Just days after news first broke, Inter have made Robin Gosens’ move to the San Siro official.
MILAN – FC Internazionale Milano is delighted to announce that an agreement has been reached with Atalanta for the signing of Robin Everardus Gosens.
The German wing-back joins the club on loan with an obligation to buy if certain conditions are met.
According to reports, a total fee of no more than €30 million will be paid to Atalanta as late as the 2023 summer and Gosens will sign a contract worth €2.5 million a year. Though the German is currently sidelined until late February with a hamstring injury, this is a stellar move from Inter. Thirty million is arguably a bargain for a player as talented as Gosens, especially considering the terms of the deal (Inter has a year and a half to pay). This is all the more impressive considering the speed with which Inter acted. There were next to no rumors about Gosens going into January, but the shrewdness of Beppe Marotta and Piero Ausilio has the German in Inter colors with time to spare before the window closes.
The 27-year-old has been a fixture in Atalanta for five seasons, tallying 157 appearances for La Dea, including 29 goals and 21 assists. He’s been one of the most productive players in Serie A over the years thanks to Gian Piero Gasperini’s reliance on attacking output from his wingback. Simone Inzaghi resembles the Atalanta manager in that sense, so Gosens should thrive once healthy. The 27-year-old should form a superb partnership with Denzel Dumfries for seasons to come.
We likely won’t see Gosens in action anytime soon as he recovers from an injury that has limited him to just 8 appearances all season so far. Luckily Ivan Perisic has the left wingback role locked down and will keep any pressure to perform immediately off Gosens’ shoulders. Next season, though, Serie A defenders should be ready for Gosens at his best under Inzaghi’s attacking system.
Welcome to Milano Robin!
