Palacio: Inter has the best attack in Italy

Amid rumors the club's new owner is looking to splash some cash on a striker in the upcoming transfer window, the Argentine forward says no one else is needed.
Inter forward Rodrigo Palacio has branded his side's strikeforce the very best in Italy.

There have been rumors that new Nerazzurri owner Erick Thohir is set to bolster Walter Mazzarri's attacking options, with the club chief himself confirming that he and the coach are set to have talks ahead of the January transfer window.

The Milan-based club sits fourth in Serie A but it has scored more goals than any of the 19 other teams, and Palacio believes that Inter has shown the current attackers can handle the pressure without extra players added in 2014.

"I do not ask about anything [transfer related] - these are decisions for the coach and the club," the 31-year-old told Sky Sport 24. "Certainly we are strong up front, though, and it is not a problem. I'd say that currently we have the best attack in Serie A."

Scudetto holder Juventus sits top of Serie A, with Roma and Napoli not far behind them, but the Argentine attacker is certain that Inter can propel itself up the table from fourth if it sticks with its current mindset.

"We are not thinking about the standings right now, we're taking things game-by-game," Palacio added. "But, if we continue in this manner, we can reach the top of the table."

Inter hosts Sampdoria at San Siro on Sunday, with kickoff at 9:00 ET.
