The Brazilian is currently training at Chelsea’s Cobham facilities as he recovers from an injury he sustained in mid-October.
The arrival of the experienced midfielder will be a huge relief for Luciano Spalletti as the Nerazzurri only have five recognized central midfielders in the first team squad at the moment.
And two of those, Marcelo Brozović and João Mário have been linked with a move away from Inter in the January transfer window.
What he former Chelsea star will give Spallatti is some flexibility within his preferred 4-2-3-1 formation. During his time with Benfica and Chelsea, Ramires showcased his excellent positional sense by sitting just in front of the defence, while he is also dynamic enough to make runs forward and chip in with a few goals too.
Ramires could easily interchange with Borja Valero, who is also equally as comfortable in a more advanced position as he is in the regista role.
Because he is a Jiangsu player, his arrival on loan will not impact Inter from a Financial Fair Play perspective, while Ramires gets a chance to showcase his talents in one of Europe’s most competitive leagues leading up to next summer’s World Cup in Russia.
What do you think of Ramires. Is his pending arrival a good move by Inter?
