Author’s note: NO TIME LIKE MERCATO TIME! So Perisic and Cerci are looking like strong possibilities possibly thanks to their friends at Inter, and Podolski? I don’t even mind these names. For once this season, I’m pretty hopeful. Of all these possibilities, who do you rate highest? Who would you like to see at Inter most? And who do you think we’ll eventually end up getting?
