Inter will prioritize experience when looking for a backup striker to Edin Dzeko in the January transfer window.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the Nerazzurri will not look to bring in a younger player such as Sassuolo’s Gianluca Scamacca or Pisa’s Lorenzo Lucca.
Alexis Sanchez could be on his way out in January, and should he depart the Nerazzurri will look for a player with the right profile to deputize for Dzeko rather than a direct replacement for the Chilean.
In so doing, the aim will be to bring in a reliable option rather than a player with room to grow, with the intention being that whoever is signed can immediately come into the team and play in place of the Bosnian when he needs a rest.
As such, the club will not be targeting any long-term younger players such as Scamacca or Lucca in the January window.
