Inter Milan are reportedly considering stepping up their interest in Sao Paulo playmaker Lucas Moura, who has also been linked with Manchester United and Real Madrid.
Moura has been linked with a number of clubs in recent months, with Chelsea, Liverpool, and Paris Saint-Germain also thought to be keen on luring him to Europe this summer.
Reports last month suggested Man Utd and Madrid were lining up bids for the 19-year-old, who has an €80million release clause in his contract, although United's move for Shinji Kagawa, and their interest in Tottenham's Luka Modric, may well lead to them cooling their interest in the teenager.
Inter recently confirmed they are keen on signing Moura this summer, with coach Andrea Stramaccioni admitting he believed the midfielder is the "one of the most interesting talents on the transfer market today" and adding that he would "be great for us."
And according to Tuttosport, Inter president Massimo Moratti and director Marco Branca are also keen on launching a bid.
However, according to the report coming out of Italy, the Italian giants are said to be reluctant to spend a large sum of money on such a young player, and are aware that they cannot compete financially with the likes of Real Madrid.
Sao Paulo are thought to be prepared to part with Moura, but only for a fee in the region of €35m.
Agent Wagner Ribeiro recently revealed that Inter, Chelsea, and Man Utd had already made contact about his client.
"He has the perfect profile to play in Europe - he's a good player, very rapid and he knows how to shoot," he said.
"However, a possible move doesn't depend on me. You firstly have to speak with the club and then the player.
"At the moment the player wants to stay at Sao Paulo and the club don't want to sell him."
