Viola look to Santon to fill the right back slot

Potentially one right back in and one out

Right back has always been a troublesome position and by that I mean there haven't been any. However, that may be about to change.

Inter Milan's Davide Santon, is the man in question to fill the gaping hole on the right hand side. He can easily play on either side of the defence. However, due the lack of options on the right-hand side, it wouldn't be a surprise to see him operate primarily there.

For years there has been a gaping hole at right-back, with Tomovic sadly playing there for far too long. This addition would also give Sousa diversity in defence. With the option to play a flat back 4 as well as the more commonly used 3 at the back.

Santon has found himself constantly in and out of the Inter side, having played eleven times this season.

It looked as if a move to Sampdoria was on the cards for Nerazzurri fullback, however his destination could be Florence. Likely to be on a temporary basis with an option to buy outright for only 4 million euros.

Its been well known that Santon hasn't been in favour in Milan, with many failed moves over the summer, including to Napoli, Sunderland and West Ham United all falling through.

What could be fueling this move is that Hellas Verona are keen on bringing in the young Dutch full-back, Kevin Diks on loan, who has only manged to play 5 minutes of Serie A football.

A move to Serie B and top of the table Verona would suit him enormously, at only 20 years of age first team action would be great experience.
