Inter Milan president Erick Thohir has been discussing the club's proposed plans for the January transfer window and has confirmed they are likely to be active, with arrivals and departures expected in the new year.
The Inter president was speaking to Tuttosport when he started to mention about transfer plans for the winter window, and although he confirmed that there will be some activity, he has told fans not to expect a lot.
Thohir also commented on the future of club-captain Mauro Icardi, as speculation about his future continues to heat up.

The Argentine was dropped by Roberto Mancini in recent weeks, sparking speculation he could be off in the New Year, but Thohir has confirmed that is not the case.
Premier League duo Arsenal and Chelsea were keen on signing the striker over the summer, and it emerged earlier this week that Liverpool could make a £25million bid for him with new manager Jurgen Klopp a huge fan.
However, the English trio have been dealt a blow as the Inter president has confirmed that there are no plans to sell the striker anytime soon.
The Express reported via Tuttosport that Thorhir said: “Icardi is our captain.
"He can now show that he can score more goals.
"There is a completely different team behind him, he and his teammates need time."
The Inter president was then asked about transfer plans for January, and he confirmed that there will be some activity, but not as much as fans had hoped.
"It’s not true that Mancini has asked for four reinforcements,” he added.
“The winter market is exciting but very dangerous. I think the Inter squad is in place.
“There will probably some leaving and some new arrivals, but we have a good team."
Striker Discusses Juve Links
Speaking of Icardi, he has also been discussing his future, and speaking to Mediaset, he opened up about some reports linking him with a shock move to Serie A champions Juventus.
“Joining the Bianconeri? Never say never, but playing here and then at Juventus would be a bit ugly," Icardi told Mediaset.
