Inter Working Towards Strengthening Two Roles Identified By Coach Antonio Conte
Inter are already working towards securing squad reinforcements in the upcoming January transfer window, identifying two roles that need to be filled to fit coach Antonio Conte’s requests, according to a report from today’s paper edition of the Milano based newspaper Corriere della Sera.
The report details how the Nerazzurri are looking for a strong forward such as Olivier Giroud. The 33-year-old Frenchman is unhappy at Chelsea due to a lack of playing time, owing to the breakout performances of young striker Tammy Abraham. Conte has identified his need for a forward such as Giroud or a similar player, in order to provide depth for Romelu Lukaku.
Furthermore, the report continues, Inter are also looking for a strong and consistent midfielder such as Barcelona’s Arturo Vidal. Whilst the 32-year-old Chilean is the primary target for this role, Inter understand the difficulty they may face trying to sign him, and so alternatives similar to the player are being followed.
