Inter Milan left-back, Kwadwo Asamoah, could be handed a limited role under Coach Antonio Conte who is said to introduce a new system to the Nerazzurri.
According to Tuttosport, the Ghanaian may not fit into Conte’s 3-5-2 system and he was looking at Matteo Darmian, Emerson Palmieri and Aleksandar Kolarov as possible replacement for Ivan Perisic and Dalbert this summer.
With Asamoah as the remaining option left for the left-back role, the ex-Chelsea boss who once considered the Ghanaian a second choice during their time at Juventus, was expected to keep Asamoah on the bench.
Perisic was said to have moved closer to exiting the Serie A side after the new manager told reporters the Croatian was unsuited to play at wing-back, while Dalbert was already heading out.
It is reported that Conte wanted to try the Croatian international in a new position this season, but unfortunately he seems to have already given up on the experiment.
Meanwhile Darmian can play on the left-hand side of defence but he is not left-footed making him favourite to man the left back role ahead of Asamoah.
The other options such as Palmieri will be difficult to prize away from Chelsea and Kolarov who is 34 could not play a whole season as first choice casting doubt on his ability to be recruited to the Italian side.
