Inter chief Thohir after Man City's Dzeko, Chelsea's Torres

Inter Milan president Erick Thohir has revealed that the club is intent on making some big-name signings this summer.

The Nerazzurri have dropped off the pace in Italian football in recent seasons but Indonesian businessman Thohir is determined to return to former glories in the coming years.

To do that, he believes it is necessary to sign some top quality players which Inter will look to do when the current campaign concludes.

Manchester City's Edin Dzeko, Chelsea's Fernando Torres and Real Madrid's Alvaro Morata have all been linked with a summer move to the San Siro and Thohir admits any one of them would be a great addition to the already-captured Hernanes and Nemanja Vidic.

"We want to make Inter a healthy club inside the next two-to-three years," Thohir told reporters.

"That also means in terms of the squad. After having already signed Hernanes [from Lazio in January], [Manchester United defender] Vidic and others will arrive.

"We will take it forward. I know that names such as Dzeko, Torres and Morata are circling. If one of them arrives, it would be a good thing.

"We will also be able to take some Italians but, for the history of the club, it's not an obligation.

"We want to also return to playing in the Champions League in two-to-three years.

"We must also balance the average age of the squad, which will be 26.2 years old, and the squad, given that we will be playing three times per week.

"For now, Inter is among the top 15 footballing brands in the world. We want to get back among the top 10."
