Robin Gosens plays in Serie A for a club from Lombardy with black and blue jerseys- In the future, however, this will no longer apply to Atalanta, but to Inter Milan. Both clubs have officially confirmed the transfer of the 27-year-old German international. Gosens initially joins the Nerazzurri on loan until 2023, after which there is a mandatory purchase option, provided that, according to the club, certain conditions are met. The left winger will then have a contract until 2026.
Inter transfer makes Gosens the most expensive addition of a German footballer in Serie A history. According to concurring media reports, the purchase obligation is 25 million euros plus possible bonuses, which should bring the total to 28 million. That was Atalanta’s initial demand, where the goal-scoring left-footer’s contract, which originally ran until 2023, was previously extended. In the rich history of German professionals in the Italian top flight took so far Mario Gomez, who in 2013/14 for 15.5 million. The player, who was transferred from FC Bayern to AC Florence for a fee of €1.5 million, takes the top spot.

Inter newcomer Robin Gosens: outstanding development at Atalanta
Gosens, in whom Newcastle United was also interested, leaves Atalanta after 157 games, 29 goals and 21 assists in five and a half years. In recent years, the Emmerich native had an outstanding development in coach Gian Piero Gasperini: The winger, who had never been active in Germany as a professional, not only turned into a system-bearing regular in Gasperini’s run-intensive 3-5-2 as a largely unknown newcomer from Heracles Almelo in the summer of 2017, but also recommended himself for the DFB squad via strong performances in the Champions League, for which he has made 13 appearances since September 2020, including at the European Championship in the summer of 2021.

In recent months, however, Gosens had missed Atalanta due to a serious thigh injury, and it is also open when he will be able to take part in the game at Inter. The transfer is therefore already seen as an anticipation of the new season. „On the left side, two players could leave coach Simone Inzaghi’s team due to expiring contracts", says Jatin Dietl, Area Manager Transfermarkt IT. „Aleksandar Kolarov has already been signed and Ivan Perisic, who is playing a very strong season, has not yet agreed on an extension. That would leave only homegrown Federico Dimarco for this energy-sapping position. Gosens fits Inzaghi like a glove as a counterpart to Denzel Dumfries on the right side due to his attacking strength.“
