Former Inter striker Aldo Serena believes the club have a strong array of attacking talent, but may miss the injured Alexis Sanchez during tomorrow’s clash against Napoli.

The Nerazzurri welcome the Serie A leaders to the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza and coach Simone Inzaghi has the options of Edin Dzeko, Lautaro Martinez, and Joaquin Correa in attack, but Sanchez continues to nurse a hamstring injury.

In an interview published in today’s newspaper edition of Il Mattino, Serena offered his thoughts on Inter’s attacking strengths whilst ruing the loss of ex-Arsenal and Manchester United star Sanchez.

“Without Sanchez, Inter are missing a high-level alternative forward in the match, because the Chilean is good at attacking spaces, has physicality and knows how to defend the ball,” Serena argued.

However, the former AC Milan and Juventus striker was impressed with the partnership of Dzeko and Martinez, whilst felt that Correa also offered an alternative since his summer arrival from Lazio.

“They are two complete strikers, with technique and vision of the game and they complement each other in the best possible way. Dzeko plays more centrally with Lautaro in support, but the Bosnian centre-forward can also drop deep as an attacking midfielder for the Argentine to run into space.

“Against Udinese, Correa matured and had an excellent second half. He has talent and speed,” he concluded.

Serena scored 56 goals in 155 appearances across two spells for Inter, lifting the Scudetto in 1989 and the UEFA Cup in 1991.
