It has recently been reported by Tuttosport (via Football Italia) that Antonio Conte’s Inter are currently monitoring several central defenders to strengthen their backline while keeping an eye on their finances. The Nerazzurri are looking at Shkodran Mustafi, Jerome Boateng, Nikola Maksimovic and Aissa Mandi. Schar is another defender that the Nerazzurri are currently monitoring.

Starting with an easy one, what number does Wilson wear for Newcastle?

Schar had joined Newcastle from Deportivo La Coruna in the summer of 2018 for a fee of £3.60 million. He has previously plied his trade with Basel and German club Hoffenheim (as per Transfermarkt).

Since arriving at Newcastle, the Switzerland defender has made 63 appearances in all competitions, also having scored six goals (as per Transfermarkt). Some other Newcastle fans also discussed the defender’s links with a move to Inter.

These Newcastle fans have a mixed reaction to the news. While some still rate Schar, others wouldn’t be bothered if he leaves.

Schar has picked up a rating of only 6.19 in the Premier League this season, having made seven appearances so far. This shows that the Swiss defender hasn’t had a great campaign so far and because of that, the Magpies can afford to sell him.
