The January transfer window will answer a lot of questions for Inter Milan. No one knows whether new president and principal owner Erick Thohir will play aggressively in the market the way predecessor Massimo Moratti did, or if he will play things slowly and patiently.
In a November interview on RAI, as reported by Ben Gladwell of ESPN, Thohir laid down a goal of Champions League glory in 2016—the year that the tournament's final will be played at the San Siro. That statement is a possible indicator that he'll be in the "heavy spender" category.
Whoever comes to the team this year will be his very first signing. Fans could be forgiven for not remembering who Moratti's first signing was, but it was a good one. Fans can only hope Thohir's first signing is as successful as Javier Zanetti.
Who might that first signing be? Let's take a look at five men Thohir should look to acquire this winter.
