Serie A strugglers Inter Milan are looking to revamp their squad come January in an attempt to revive their season from being a total catastrophe. New boss Claudio Ranieri is facing an uphill battle and is desperate for the club to invest in players that can help turn their season around.
The Nerazzurri club find themselves in 17th position 1 point above the danger zone. They have only won 2 matches in 9 games, a stat that is shocking and unacceptable for a club of that statue. Ranieri is familiar to the Premier League having previously managed Chelsea during his tenure, and will look to there to get some inspiration for his team.
According to the Corriere dello Sport, Ranieri is looking to bring in two defenders and two midfielders. Bolton’s Gary Cahill and Manchester United’s Nemanja Vidic are on the Nerazzurri’s shopping list. With the emergence of United’s younger defenders coming through, Vidic could see Inter as a fresh new challenge. Bolton and England defender Gary Cahill doesn’t appear interested in signing a new contract any time soon, so if Bolton want to make some money from him they will have to sell in January.
Ranieri is also targeting Sochaux midfielder Kevin Anin and Genoa midfielder Juraj Kucka. On the latter, Inter Milan have already purchased 50% of the economical rights for the Slovakian international and could be set to buy out his full contract in January.
