Inter Milan’s Tommaso Rocchi says he is keen to stay with the club after his current deal expires at the end of the season.
The veteran striker, 35, joined Inter from Lazio in the January transfer window and said he is happy with life at the Giuseppe Meazza side.
“I’m happy here, I hope to spend another year at Inter,” Rocchi told Sky Italia.
“My aim is still the same: to play football and give the team a hand – I never expected to be a first-choice player.”
Rocchi has made seven Serie A appearances since his transfer and he is likely to get more playing time in the weeks to come due to Diego Milito, Rodrigo Palacio and Antonio Cassano’s injury problems.
“We’re crippled with injury problems at the moment and I’m the only recognised striker available, but that won’t stop us giving 100 percent,” he said.
“I’m in much better shape now than when I joined, I just needed to train and get into my stride.
“It’s no problem for me to play consecutive games. In situations like this you find that extra bit of motivation that pushes you beyond the fatigue.”
