Thohir distances Inter away from Ozil: "January signings often not a success, just look at Shaquiri and Podolski"
Could Mesut Ozil be the big Inter signing in January? Well, the rumors on this potential transfer have reached Indonesia where Inter president Erick Thohir has thrown water on fire explaining that there are currently no attempts to sign the Arsenal playmaker.
“They are just gossip, who knows who has started these rumors. We cannot decide on this sort of thing now. In the summer then maybe we can but we are only at the beginning of the season.”
Thohir then explains winter signings have not been a success for Inter.
“Many of them did not do their best such as Lukas Podolski and Xherdan Shaquiri, the two forwards that we signed in January and sold them in June.”
