Former Inter midfielder Antonio Sabato believes that the Nerazzurri made their decisions to strengthen their attack ahead of this season on the basis of which player were the right fit at the right time.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster TMW Radio, as reported by FCInterNews, the 63-year-old suggested that Edin Dzeko was signed because he wanted to challenge himself at a big club, and that Joaquin Correa was signed to fit into head coach Simone Inzaghi’s system.

After Romelu Lukaku’s shock departure over the summer, the Nerazzurri wasted no time in looking for attacking reinforcements to replace the Belgian.

In the end, Dzeko was signed from Roma to add an immediate injection of quality and experience into the forward line, while Lazio forward Correa was seen as the right option to link up with former Biancocelesti boss Inzaghi, who strongly felt that the Argentine was the right player to complete the attack.

“Dzeko no longer wanted to stay at Roma, he wanted to go and play for a great team,” Sabato said of the Bosnian, while of Correa he stated “Then for Correa there was the strong desire of the coach to bring him to Milan, which made it simple.”
