In an interview with Italian news outlet, legendary Inter striker Alessandro Altobelli has shared his views on how Inter’s season has went so far, the first season under the stewardship of former Italian national team manager Antonio Conte.

Inter are currently sitting in third place in the league, nine points off table toppers Juventus with a game in hand, they are in the semi finals of the Coppa Italia and are also in the last 16 of the Europa League.

“It has been a positive season for Inter. This was year zero for the Nerazzurri. In the Summer many big players like Icardi, Perisic and Nainggolan left and up until the first defeat to Juventus they were at the top of the table. Conte was immediately good at understanding what the team needed and enhanced it,” he explained.

Altobelli was then asked what can Inter management do in the upcoming Summer transfer window in order to strengthen the team.

“Looking at the players Inter already have in their squad, the defence is the best in Italy and their midfield is full of quality players and they are well equipped up front with Lautaro, Lukaku, Sanchez and the young Esposito.

“To make a leap in quality, Inter need to bring in top players for the midfield and on the flanks.”

The now 55-year-old spent 11 years on Inter’s books between 1977 and 1988 and was absolutely prolific during his time with the Nerazzurri club.

He made a total of 465 appearances across all competitions for the club during which time he scored a total of 209 goals, with only Giuseppe Meazza having scored more goals for Inter than he has.
