Striker Felipe Caicedo could be a player Inter turn to in the run-in of their season if they are unable to get their attack firing with their other forwards.
This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who argue that the Ecuadorian may be the right man to give the Nerazzurri an extra weapon to turn to should the other strikers in the team remain out of form.
So far Caicedo has not featured much for Inter since joining on loan from Genoa in January, with the 33-year-old having been restricted to brief cameos from the bench.
However, the team could well be looking at the mediocre displays by starting duo Edin Dzeko and Lautaro Martinez against Fiorentina, and the failure to impact the game from Joaquin Correa and Alexis Sanchez, and considering their options.
Ultimately, Caicedo was signed to give the team some extra impact in the final third when the other forwards are unavailable or performing badly, and while he has not managed to provide this year, the time could yet come for him.
