Riccardo Ferri dismisses Inter Milan’s title prospects

Former Inter Milan defender Riccardo Ferri does not believe the Nerazzurri have the squad to challenge for the Serie A crown this season. The San Siro outfit have strengthened their squad during the summer with the likes of Radja Nainggolan joining the club but Ferri believes there are still far off from competing with the Bianconeri, who themselves have reinforced the squad.

Speaking to Radio 24, Ferri indicated that the failure to sign Luka Modric may have no bearing of the Italian outfit, though they are unlikely to catch the gap of the reigning champions, he said: “I do not think Inter can go for the Scudetto and that is not only down to the fact that they did not manage to sign Luka Modric. Despite reducing the gap with Juventus, the Bianconeri have themselves reinforced also and still remain in front of everyone.”

Who has been the best player in Serie A this season?

The 2016-17 Serie A campaign is about to come to an end. There are only four more rounds of matches left. Juventus look set to win the Scudetto, while AS Roma and Napoli appear set to take the fight for the runners-up spot down to the wire.

Lazio and Atalanta, this season’s surprise package, are going to battle for the fourth spot. Pescara have already been relegated to Serie B, with Genoa, Empoli, Crotone and Palermo all aiming to avoid the dreaded drop to the Italian second division.

Serie A is blessed with some world-class players and some hugely talented youngsters. Below we look at the three best footballers in the Italian top flight this season and then we choose our Serie A Player of the 2016-17 Season.
