Ferrara: Conte wanted Vidal at Inter Milan, not Eriksen

Former Juventus defender Ciro Ferrara believes Christian Eriksen wasn't a first-choice signing for Inter Milan coach Antonio Conte.

Ferrara says Conte would've preferred Barcelona midfielder Arturo Vidal.

"Antonio explained it very well, Eriksen needs time to settle into and understand certain tactical mechanisms," Ferrara told Tiki Taka.

Ashley Young and Victor Moses could slot right in because they're on the wings, all they have to do is go up and down. The Inter midfield is already strong, it's about keeping the right balance.

“In my view, Conte would've preferred that Inter sign Vidal rather than Eriksen in January."
