Inter‘s transfer business over the summer was largely well-received. Not only did they add fresh blood to their starting XI, but the Nerazzurri also added young talent to their ranks, with the idea of building a team that will last for a number of years to come.

By all accounts, Inter’s summer was probably one of the best in Italy. Not only did the Nerazzurri outfit make a profit of €70 million, which helped with their Financial Fair Play balance in Serie A and the UEFA Champions League, but they also improved their side.

Inter’s 2023 summer signings: How they are settling?

Yann Sommer

Inter had an interest in Sommer as far back as January 2023, due to the knowledge of the interest in then-starting goalkeeper Andre Onana

The two have some similarities; both are praised for their incredible distribution abilities – the only real difference between them is their age. 

The Swissman has only made one mistake this season, against Sassuolo. However, given his heroics and characteristics in other fixtures this can be forgotten, especially given Inter has only conceded six times in Serie A.

Benjamin Pavard

The Frenchman was targeted by Inter for the majority of the summer, with Simone Inzaghi desperate to add a long-term replacement for Matteo Darmian to his side. 

Pavard was a pefect fit. As such, when the defender showed interest in the deal, Giuseppe Marotta and Co. went all out to get their man. 

Inter fans are infatuated with him, as are the management and board. He has already established himself as a starter, and it doesn’t look like he will lose his place. 

He has shown himself to be the perfect heir to Darmian, who has held the position for so long.

Yann Aurel Bisseck

While he featured often in pre-season, Bisseck has yet to start in Serie A and has only featured once for seven minutes. 

Nonetheless, he works hard in training and has a desire to improve, and Inzaghi is a big fan of his talent and his time will come. However, Inter sees him as one for the future, someone who will only get better with time.

Juan Cuadrado

The initial reaction to Cuadrado‘s signing from Inter fans was very negative – given his Juventus past. However, the Colombian has shown glimpses of what he could add to the side. There have been two issues: the former Juventus man has faced injury, and the second is Denzel Dumfries

The Dutchman has been superb this season as such the South American has had little chance to impress when he hasn’t been injured. 

Davide Frattesi

Frattesi was another of the big summer moves, which Inter had targeted for large parts of the summer. Though like Pavard, Inter faced competition, but the player wanted to represent the Nerazzurri instead of any of their competition. 

He has played eight times, yet he has only started once due to the midfielder nursing an injury. There is a belief that he will return after the break is concluded.

Davy Klaassen

The Dutchman was a piece of astute business. He didn’t join as a starting player but rather as someone to provide experience and rotation. Arriving on the final day of the window meant that he still needed time to adjust to Inzaghi‘s system. 

Carlos Augusto

The Brazillian has impressed so far, but again, he faces similar issues that Juan Cuadrado has faced. If he is to play, he needs to displace Federico Dimarco, which seems an almost impossible task. 

However, the former Monza defender is eager to impress and has been called up to the Brazil National Team for the first time, which will only benefit the 24-year-old given the experience he will get. 

He is more than ready to make an impact for the Nerazzurri. Yet, it is unknown when, or if Inzaghi will take Dimarco out to trial the new signing. 

Marcus Thuram

The expectations for Thuram were that he would offer a few goals now and again. This hasn’t been the case, much to the delight of everyone attached to the club. 

The Frenchman already has built up a telepathic connection with Lautauro Martinez, and Inzaghi needs not to worry about what he does with his strikers. His decision has been made. Thuram may not be as indispensable as the Argentine, but, his position is secure. 

From 10 games, he already has three goals and seven assists, putting him amongst the top performers in the division. Inter faced a lot of competition for his signature and securing him may have been Inter’s best business of the summer. 

Marko Arnautovic

After making an impact against Monza, his first start against Real Sociedad in the Champions League left a few people questioning the Austrian. However, after his injury, Inter seemed to miss him somewhat. 

They lack another striker with the same profile so he will get chances regardless. However, his impact needs to be felt more after his return if he is to be given chances more frequently.

Alexis Sanchez

Given Alexis has been a consistent player to rely on for minutes with a shoe-string attack available to Inzaghi, things have been somewhat positive.

Nevertheless, there are two issues: Firstly, while Sanchez started his preparation late, he isn’t physically at the level required yet to be an important player in Inzaghi’s side. Secondly, and more importantly, as a forward, Sanchez isn’t contributing.
