Inter Milan coach Andrea Stramaccioni expects new arrivals before the market shuts this month.

Strama admits he hopes to strengthen his midfield options.

"We're looking for a right-sided player and a central midfielder with different characteristics to what we have now. Otherwise they will be of no use.

"Sneijder? My estimation of Wes has remained unchanged and he played all of the time until he got injured. Inter, however, changed in the summer. It's not easy to find players of his level, but whether he stays or goes, I hope this story reaches a conclusion."
