After a 2012-13 season they'd rather forget, Inter Milan have reached the end of their first season under the ownership of Erick Thohir in much better shape.
The Nerazzurri sit in fifth place—four places higher than their finish a year ago—and look set to keep hold of their place in next year's Europa League.
Of course, Thohir is not content. Last week, he stated in an interview with Indonesian outlet Bola, via Football Italia, that he intends to "look to the Champions League places as early as next year." The owner previously stated a goal of reaching the final in 2016, when the San Siro is supposed to host the final.
In order to fulfill either of those goals, Thohir must make serious changes to his squad. With teams such as Juventus, Roma, Napoli and Fiorentina all making excellent transfer moves over the last few years, Inter must improve their own playing staff in order to keep pace with the sides that are emerging as Italy's elite.
Everyone wants to see big moves, but there are other, smaller moves Inter could make to strengthen the squad and give it important experience and depth.
What could Thohir do to improve the squad? Let's take a look at five potential targets.
