Inter CEO Beppe Marotta stopped by Italian broadcaster DAZN moments ago to share his thoughts on all things concerning the Nerazzurri, ahead of kick-off at the Dacia Arena in Udine where Udinese host Inter in tonight’s Serie A clash between the two sides, with kick-off scheduled for 20.45 CET.

The former Juventus CEO was asked how pleased he and the club are after having been able to sign Christian Eriksen from Tottenham during the transfer window that shut this past Friday.

Marotta underlined how happy the entire club was with every bit of business they had concluded in January before revealing that the reason they did not sign French international striker Olivier Giroud due to Chelsea declining the Nerazzurri’s offer.

“We are satisfied with how the entire transfer window went as a whole. We wanted to raise the level of quality of the squad and we were able to do so in the best manner possible.

“The opportunity to sign players coincided with the arrival of players of great quality who also have lots of experience.

“Some signing were prioritized over others, and we are very satisfied of how we approached this situation. We wanted to close a last deal with Chelsea with they did not want sell Giroud and then there wasn’t enough time.”

Marotta was then asked what Nigerian international Victor Moses offers the Nerazzurri that they felt they didn’t already have, to which Marotta replied that he was the last missing piece needed to adapt the squad to playing Conte’s brand of football.

“We consider him to be the last piece of a puzzle that Conte has shaped in the best way possible, and we are happy over this.

“Conte worked with him at Chelsea, where he was a starter. Also, there are a lot of matches, the players who don’t play tonight will have other chances. We are happy with our squad.”
