A report from CalcioMercato.com has explained why Inter were unable to get a deal for Leicester City striker Islam Slimani over the line at the end of the January transfer window.

The Algerian international striker, who is current out on loan at Ligue 1 outfit Monaco, was one of several players linked with a move to Inter as the Nerazzurri sought out a new striker to bolster their attack for the second half of the season.

Inter managed to strike an agreement with the player himself almost immediately but Monaco were asking for compensation to agree to cancel his loan with them and due to lack of time left in the window at the time, Inter had to miss out on the 31-year-old, who has seven goals and seven assists in 14 games for Monaco.

After missing out on Slimani, Inter were unable to complete the signing of any other strike despite drawing strong links to both Olivier Giroud and Fernando Llorente.
