Here are the player ratings from Inter‘s title-winning campaign, from Lautaro Martinez to Stefano Sensi and Davy Klaassen

Sommer 9 – Inter didn’t miss André Onana. The Swiss international moved to San Siro for less than €7m from Bayern Munich and has kept 17 clean sheets in 31 league games, conceding just 18 goals.

Audero 6 – Didn’t concede in two Serie A appearances.

Di Gennaro – N/A – He was the first goalkeeper to join Inter last summer. He will probably make his debut in the final games of the season.

Bastoni 8 – Proved to be the best Italian defender and a modern centre-back who would play in any European top team. Luckily, he is not even considering leaving the Nerazzurri.

Pavard 8 – The France international further raised the bar in defence thanks to his experience and attitude. An injury against Atalanta in November forced him to the sidelines for a few weeks, but he didn’t struggle to return to the starting XI.

Bissack 7.5 – A convincing debut season for the German defender. He was not a starter, but he was always up to the task and scored decisive goals against Lecce and Bologna.

De Vrij 7 – A solid replacement for Acerbi, especially at the start of the season.

Acerbi 8 – A charismatic and experienced defender, Acerbi massively contributed to Inter’s defensive solidity and also scored three goals, including one against Milan. He was lucky to escape punishments in a racism row with Juan Jesus in March.

Dimarco 8.5 – Five goals and six assists in 27 Serie A appearances, including a goal-of-the-season contenders against Frosinone and Empoli. His first Serie A title is even more special as he’s a product of the club academy.

Darmian 7.5 – Probably one of the most underrated Inter players this season. Deployed as a centre-back and as a right-back, the Italian was never disappointing and will probably earn a spot in the Italy squad at Euro 2024 thanks to his performances with the Nerazzurri.

Calhanoglu 10 – Simply perfect: 11 goals and three assists in 29 Serie A matches. Inter’s leader in the middle of the park and one of the best deep-lying playmakers in the world. Inter didn’t miss Brozovic.

Asllani 6.5 – The Albania international showed encouraging signs as Calhanoglu’s replacement.

Barella 9.5 – According to ex-Inter President Massimo Moratti, he was the best Inter player this season. It’s a close call. Surely, the Italy international was impressive in the second part of the campaign and proved to be the most complete midfielder in the country.

Frattesi 8 – Five goals and two assists in 27 appearances and you’d never believe he only started three times in Serie A. It says all about Frattesi’s attitude and his immediate impact at San Siro after a summer transfer from Sassuolo. The future leader of Inter’s midfield.

Mkhitaryan 8.5 – ‘The Armenian train’ started the campaign with seven goal contributions: two assists and five goals. He hasn’t yet scored in the second part of the season but still managed four assists and the quality never dropped.

Klaassen 6 – 11 Serie A appearances, once as a starter.

Sensi 6 – He was expected to leave in January, but a transfer to Leicester City eventually collapsed. He collected three Serie A appearances winning the second Scudetto at the Meazza.

Dumfries 7.5 – A few highs and lows, including a red card in the derby against Milan, but still managed five assists and three goals. It remains to be seen if he’ll stay beyond the summer, extending his contract, which expires in 2025.

Buchanan 6 – Joined in the January transfer window to replace the injured Juan Cuadrado and has learned the job ahead of 2024-25 when he’ll probably get more playing time.

Cuadrado 6 – Hit by injuries, the ex-Juventus defender only made seven Serie A appearances, including one against his former club and fans, who didn’t welcome him well at all.

Carlos Augusto 7.5 – A highly reliable replacement for Dimarco and Bastoni.

Lautaro Martinez 10 – Serie A’s leading scorer. Inter’s leader and captain. El Toro has had the best Serie A season of his career and it’s not over yet.

Thuram 9.5 – The Frenchman joined as a free agent in the summer and it was another stunning signing from Beppe Marotta. His last goal helped Inter win the title. Overall, he netted 12 times in 31 Serie A matches. Not too bad.

Arnautovic 6.5 – Not accustomed to being a substitute, the Austria international scored twice in 23 appearances. He had his moments and he was a charismatic figure inside the dressing room.

Sanchez 6.5 – He returned to the club after just one season. The start was tough, but with two goals and four assists in 19 Serie A games, he still gave his contribution.

Coach: Inzaghi 10 – Inter’s main target was to win the Scudetto and Inzaghi got the job done, securing a historic title with five games to spare. The Nerazzurri even made a further step forward in terms of playing style and personality and it wasn’t guaranteed. A highly underrated coach at a European level.
