A report from today’s paper edition of the Rome based newspaper Corriere dello Sport has analysed Inter’s January transfer market strategy.
The report details how the club are looking to reinforce the squad with a few players, namely a new midfielder and backup striker.
It has been made clear that next month’s window must not affect the budget and so players must be sold before reinforcements can be signed.
The futures of unneeded players Christian Eriksen, Matias Vecino, Radja Nainggolan and Andrea Pinamonti are all important then, as their departures facilitate new arrivals.
Cagliari will not accept a loan swap for Nainggolan, killing the idea of signing Leonardo Pavoletti. If the Rossoblu want the Belgian midfielder, they’ll have to pay his salary for the rest of the season or sign him permanently.
Conte has a few targets in mind to fill certain spots, including Parma’s Gervinho up front. A swap deal between Eriksen and Paris Saint-Germain’s Leandro Paredes could also take place.
