Inter Milan coach Walter Mazzarri admits he wants to trim his squad.

Mazzarri says he is keen to offload his fringe players before bringing in new additions.

"For a start, the transfer window has barely opened. Then, as I've said before, we're a work in progress here because we have players who aren't featuring much and deserve to be playing more elsewhere. We should aim first of all to use this transfer window to adjust the number of players we have in this squad so that we can train well, with others going out to get some experience under their belts or so that their value can increase.

"That's the sort of choice we need to make. People need to know what's going on. There are players here who have come back from injury and have played less. You know that the starting 11 has been much the same all along and that's why, to avoid wasting our resources, ideally you'd have just the players you need for the league and the Coppa Italia, which is very important to us."
