The Nerazzurri have struggled for goals this season despite sitting fourth in the table and the former president believes the Sampdoria striker could help solve their issues
Sampdoria striker Eder is the answer to Inter’s goalscoring problems, according to former club president Massimo Moratti.
Inter’s Serie A title bid has stuttered over recent weeks, having dropped to fourth in the table with just one win in their last five Serie A matches.
Roberto Mancini’s side have amassed 41 points, despite scoring only 26 times in 21 league games this season, and they have been linked with Paris Saint-Germain’s Ezequiel Lavezzi along with Eder as possible options to bolster their forward line.
Moratti, who was replaced as Inter owner by Erick Thohir in 2013, believes Sampdoria’s 13-goal forward is a better fit than Argentina international Lavezzi.

“I think the problem is there, right there – in scoring goals,” he told Gazzetta dello Sport.
“So I have the impression that Eder is definitely the right player for us.
“I think Eder’s a player who’s capable of contributing a good amount of goals. More than Lavezzi? I think so, although I haven’t seen Lavezzi as much.
“It’s a purely tactical choice in the end and I think that the Sampdoria player is the right signing.”
Eder is reported to be a transfer target for surprise Premier League leaders Leicester City.
