Inter have the best attack in Italy – Palacio

Amid rumours that the club’s new owner is looking to splash out on a striker in the upcoming transfer window, the Argentine says no one else is needed

Inter forward Rodrigo Palacio has branded his side’s strikeforce the very best in Italy.

There have been rumours that new Nerazzurri owner Erick Thohir is keen to bolster Walter Mazzarri’s attacking options, with the club chief himself confirming that he and the coach are set to have talks ahead of the January transfer window.

The Milan-based club sit fourth in Serie A but they have scored more goals than any of the 19 other teams, and Palacio believes that Inter have suggested that the current attackers can handle the pressure without extra players added in 2014.

“I do not ask about anything [transfer related] – these are decisions for the coach and the club,” the 31-year-old told Sky Sport 24.

“Certainly we are strong up front, though, and it is not a problem. I’d say that currently we have the best attack in Serie A.”

Scudetto holders Juventus sit top of Serie A, with Roma and Napoli not far behind them, but the Argentine attacker is certain that Inter can propel themselves up the table from fourth if they stick with their current mindset.

“We are not thinking about the standings right now, we’re taking things game-by-game,” Palacio added. “But, if we continue in this manner, we can reach the top of the table.”

Inter host Sampdoria at San Siro on Sunday, with kick-off at 15:00CET.
