Papu Gomez, Wijnaldum, De Paul? Inter confirm no big signings in January
Inter CEO Beppe Marotta says that the club will make no big signings in January.
The Nerazzurri won their eighth league match in a row on Sunday and are now the favourites to win this season’s Scudetto.
They are expected to sign a backup forward in January, while coach Antonio Conte would also like a new midfielder given Christian Eriksen is set to leave the club.
Inter have been heavily linked with a number of top players, most notably Atalanta captain Papu Gomez, who is expected to quit Atalanta after falling out with coach Gian Piero Gasperini.
Conte is also a huge fan of Udinese’s Rodrigo De Paul and Liverpool’s Gini Wijnaldum, the latter’s contract expiring at the end of the season.
“All clubs are working out their strategies and we have done the same,” Marotta told Sky Sport, referring to a summit with Conte and club president Steven Zhang.
“The club want to always guarantee a balance between investment and revenue, not just Inter, but all big sides will be in the situation where COVID has reduced revenue, and therefore we won’t be making big investments in January.”
