Inter look to Palermo's Ilicic

It is suggested Inter are looking to Palermo bench-warmer Josip Ilicic as a January swoop for Claudio Ranieri.

The new Coach took over from Gian Piero Gasperini after only five official games in charge and would like players to best suit his tactics.

Today's newspapers in Italy claim the primary transfer target for mid-season is Slovenian international Ilicic.

He was impressive in his first campaign at Palermo, but has struggled to find space in the team under Devis Mangia.

Another alternative to reinforce the wings is Udinese's Chilean talent Mauricio Isla.

However, it's also reported that Inter are unhappy at the price-tags of €15-20m for either player.
