How Antonio Conte is turning Inter Milan into a Premier League team with transfers for Eriksen, Giroud and Young – The Sun

INTER MILAN might be pushing for the Serie A title – but Antonio Conte is slowly turning them into a Premier League team.

The Italian manager has called on some of the biggest names in English football to help his side knock Juventus off their perch.

Inter Milan have secured deals for a number of big names since Conte was appointed last summer to replace Luciano Spalletti.

And the 50-year-old swiftly got rid of Mauro Icardi, Ivan Perisic and Radja Nainggolan because they did not fit the bill.

Conte signed Diego Godin on a free deal and landed Serie A stars Nicolo Barella and Stefano Sensi to bolster his midfield.

And then the manager turned his attentions back to the Premier League – where he worked with Chelsea from 2016 until 2018.

Romelu Lukaku completed a £76.5million switch from Manchester United to Inter Milan on deadline Day.

Conte was questioned as the Italian side TRIPLED the Belgian's wages – but his gamble has paid off.

The 26-year-old already has 16 goals and four assists under his belt this season.

Then Conte signed Alexis Sanchez on loan until the end of the season despite his disastrous spell with Manchester United.

And Conte is expected to add some more Premier League power to his squad during the January transfer window.

SunSport exclusively revealed that Ashley Young is still hoping to join them – even though they have already signed another left-back.

Manchester United team-mate Tahith Chong also looks set to make the move to Italy.

The 20-year-old's agent has been pictured meeting with Inter officials ahead of a potential free transfer this summer.

Reports in Italy claim wantaway Tottenham star Christian Eriksen has penned a four-and-a-half year deal with Inter.

And Spurs boss Jose Mourinho has told fans to respect him even if he does decide to end his seven-year stay in North London.

Conte's side could also snap up Jesse Lingard as he is facing the axe at Old Trafford.
