Inter could rely on the talents of players already owned by the club as they look for their future solution in the centre-forward position.

This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who outline the fortunes of some of the Nerazzurri’s young strikers out on loan with Samuele Mulattier and Sebastiano Esposito potential future stars.

Samuele Mulattieri has impressed on loan with Serie B side, making eight appearances and scoring six goals in all competitions as he has already followed up the potential showed in a loan spell at Volendam last season.

Meanwhile, Sebastiano Esposito’s four goals and five assists in fourteen appearances for Basel could point towards a future with the Nerazzurri or otherwise a successful career elsewhere.

Andrea Pinamonti joined Empoli on loan in the summer after the Nerazzurri were unable to move him on permanently, and so far he has shown promise, getting his first goal for the newly-promoted Tuscan side as he looks to prove himself by establishing himself as a key player during their season.

Things are not going as well for Eddie Salcedo, who so far has only managed nine minutes of football across two appearances under new Spezia boss Thiago Motta, though he will hope that he can find a rhythm going forward.
