Lavezzi would be of good advantage to Inter – Mazzarri

Ezequiel LavezziInter boss Walter Mazzarri has discussed a possible move for the Paris Saint-Germain attacker Ezequiel Lavezzi after admitting he could be a “useful” acquisition.

The 28-year-old – whose current deal expires on June 2016 – has not been able to make a permanent starting spot in Laurent Blanc’s PSG side this season and many suggests he could return to Serie A in the winter.

Mazzarri did not deny interest in signing the Argentine, whom he coached for three years at Napoli, but said that a move for the Parisiens forward would be complicated.

“If Lavezzi did what he did at Napoli and then joined PSG it’s because he’s a player who would be useful at any club,” he told Rai Sport.

“But going from that to saying that Inter should buy him, well, there are lots of factors to consider.”

With Diego Milito and Mauro Icardi dowm with injury, the Nerazzurri are running low on strikers, and Mazzarri has hopes of resolving the situation quickly and retaining the club’s status as the leading scorers in Serie A this term.

“Back in the summer I think we had Milito and Icardi… but now they’re injured,” he continued. “We’re missing two players in the same position – and not because the club didn’t sign them but because they got put on the sidelines.

“Until January we have to work with what we’ve got. Besides, with the players that we have been able to field we have the best attack in Serie A.”
