On 29 July 2015, Gagliardini moved to Serie B side Vicenza on loan, with an option to purchase.[12] On 9 August he made his debut for Vicenza in the second round of Coppa Italia in a match won at penalty 4–2 against Cosenza.[13] On 15 August, Gagliardini played in the third round of Coppa Italia, he was replaced by Giovanni Sbrissa in the 78th minute of a 1–0 away win over Empoli.[14] On 6 September he made his Serie B debut for Vicenza in a 1–0 away win against Modena.[15] On 27 October, Gagilardini scored his first goal for Vicenza in the 24th minute of a 2–1 away win over Trapani.[16] On 3 December he played in the fourth round of Coppa Italia in a 2–1 away defeat against Carpi, he was replaced in the 64th minute by Salvatore D'Elia.[17] Gagliardi finished his loan to Vicenza with 19 apparences and 1 goal.[8]

Return to Atalanta[edit]

On 15 May 2016, he made his Serie A debut with Atalanta in a 2–1 away win over Genoa, on the final match-day of the 2015–16 season.[18][19][20] The first half of the following season, he was promoted to the starting line-up, making 13 more league appearances for the club.[21]

Internazionale[edit]

On 11 January 2017, Gagliardini joined Internazionale on loan, with an obligation to buy in the summer of 2018.[22][23] He was presented two days later, where he was assigned the squad number 5 (previously worn by Felipe Melo, who left Inter in the same transfer window).[24][25] Gagliardini made his Inter debut on 14 January against Chievo at San Siro, playing the full-90 minutes in a 3–1 win to help the nerazzurri claim their fifth consecutive league victory.[26] On 5 March, he scored his first goal for Inter in a 5–1 win at Cagliari.[27] The following week, Gagliardini scored against his parent club Atalanta in a 7–1 thrashing by Inter.[28]

International career[edit]

On 28 February 2014, Gagliardini was called up to the Italy under-20 side.[29] On 12 August 2015, he made his debut with the under-21 side under manager Luigi Di Biagio, in a friendly match against Hungary, which ended in a 0–0 draw.[30][31][32]

In November 2016, Gagliardini was called up to the Italian senior squad for the first time by manager Gian Piero Ventura for a 2018 FIFA World Cup qualification match against Liechtenstein and a friendly match against Germany, following an injury to Claudio Marchisio.[33][34]

On 28 March 2017, Gagliardini made his first senior appearance for the Italy national football team, along with four other players; he came off the bench to replace the injured Daniele De Rossi in the 37th minute of a 2–1 friendly away win against the Netherlands.[35][36]

In June 2017, he was included in the Italy under-21 squad for the 2017 UEFA European Under-21 Championship by manager Di Biagio.[37]

Style of play[edit]

Gagliardini is a quick, hard-working, energetic, physically strong, and well-rounded midfielder, who is capable of playing as a box-to-box, central, attacking, or defensive midfielder. He is effective as a ball winner, but can also distribute the ball well and start attacking plays or provide assists after winning back possession, courtesy of his good vision and technique. He also possesses a good shot, which allows him to contribute to his team's offensive play with goals.[21][38][39]
