Inter Milan coach Roberto Mancini says a major reshuffle of his squad is not needed in the January transfer window.
Inter Milan sit firmly on top of the Serie A table, but last season had to alter their tactics after the club signed wingers Xherdan Shaqiri and Lukas Podolski in the January transfer window.
"I don't think we need to do anything, but we do need to consider if there are players who want to move on so they can play more," the former Manchester City manager said, in an interview with the Italian television channel RAI.
There are some players in the Inter squad who are lacking game time, including Spanish defender Martin Montoya who is on loan from Champions League winners Barcelona. But Mancini says it is up to Montoya whether he wants to continue to play for Inter or not.
"I don't know if Montoya will leave in January. He's played and shown he's up to the task... It's up to him if he wants to accept this situation or look somewhere else where he might play more regularly," Mancini added.
Mancini also played down Italian media rumours on the possible signing of Boca Juniors striker Jonathan Calleri.
Inter, four points ahead of second-placed Fiorentina, play Lazio on Sunday in their last match before the transfer window opens.
