Inter Milan director Piero Ausilio concedes he wants to add some new faces in January with Christian Eriksen and Olivier Giroud linked with moves to Italy.
Ausilio was in London looking to finalise deals for the aforementioned pair as well as Ashley Young from Manchester United.
The latter is potentially available on a free transfer should Manchester United be prepared to let him go this month.
But Ausilio admits there has been no such breakthrough yet as he looks to provide Antonio Conte with the tools to topple Juventus in Serie A.
“There’s no news, no developments,” he said.
“We have faith in our squad and the work Inter are doing. If we then have the opportunity to improve the current squad, then we’ll do so.”
The Italian side already spent big in the summer with Romelu Lukaku arriving for big money from Old Trafford.
He has proved a big hit and leads the goalscoring charts for Conte’s side, but he is still looking for reinforcements.
Giroud and the Italian manager worked together during his final year at Chelsea, but the Frenchman has been unable to usurp Tammy Abraham in the Blues attack this term.

He has aspirations of a place in the French squad for Euro 2020 and knows he needs first team football if he is to be included.
But it is Eriksen who is Ausilio’s No 1 target as he eyes a cut-price deal for the wantaway Tottenham playmaker who has just six months left on his current deal.
The Dane was understood to be holding out for a move to Real Madrid, but a move to the San Siro may also be to his liking.
Young, meanwhile, has rejected the offer of a contract extension in Manchester and wants to seal a switch to Italy this month, but will sign a pre-contract agreement should the two parties fail to agree on a deal this month.
