Inter Milan have continued to reinforce their ageing and wafer-thin attack, with Parma's Ishak Befodil added to their ranks. The 21-year-old Algerian arrives at the San Siro after 20-year-old Mauro Icardi joined from Sampdoria, with president Massimo Moratti looking to beef up his strike force.
A shortage of strikers was Inter's main problem last season, especially after Diego Milito's season ended prematurely with a cruciate ligament injury. However, their attempts at rectifying the problem this summer have gone well, with Belfodil's reported five-year contract indicative of an attack which looks good for the long term.
Belfodil only scored eight goals in 33 Serie A games for Parma last season, though he wasn't always used as a main central striker. A strong, mobile forward and a great dribbler, Parma coach Roberto Donadoni often used Belfodil out wide, meaning Inter boss Walter Mazzarri could feasibly play Belfodil anywhere across his favoured attacking trident. Inter's next generation may finally be starting to take shape.
