Inter looking to strengthen attacking line up in the summer
Brazilian starlet Ganso has been attracting attention from a host of Europe’s elite clubs, but one stands out above the others as the much sought after Santos starlet has revealed that he is honoured that Inter are reportedly monitoring his progress.
The Nerazzurri are not the only side credited with an interest in the young Brazilian, with the likes of Milan, Chelsea and Olympique Lyon all thought to be wrestling for the playmaker’s signature.
Discussing the potential of a possible move to Inter, Ganso told Globo Esporte: “It’s great to hear that a club like Inter are interested in signing me. They’re one of the biggest clubs in the world and have a lot of Brazilians in their squad.
“It’s not like I’m already dreaming about playing for Inter, but it would be pretty nice. It’d be great to play alongside Samuel Eto’o and set him up in front of the goal.”
The Brazilian international also went on to reveal that he is close to signing a contract extension with his current employers Santos.
However, the deal will include a lower sell on clause should a move to one of Europe’s elite materialize.
The Chile international, who impressed at last year’s World Cup, was watched by a representative of Chelsea as he scored four goals against Palermo in the 7-0 victory last Sunday.
And Udinese have confirmed they have revealed that they have received a bid of £29.7million for the player.
Manchester United are also monitoring Sanchez ahead of a summer tussle for his services.
Udinese’s chairman Franco Soldati said: ‘Sanchez is of interest of British and Italian teams. Somebody has already offered (for Alexis Sanchez) a figure close to 30-35 million euros but I cannot say by whom (we have received it).’
His agent, Fernando Felicevich, flew from Chile to Udine for a meeting with club owner Giampaolo Pozzo and president Franco Soldati to study the best approach for both parties.
Speculation rose about him joining Inter when Sanchez and Felicevich were in Milan together on Tuesday but it was for a sponsorship appearance.
Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti knows Sanchez from his time at AC Milan. Apart from Florent Malouda on the left Chelsea have little natural width and Ancelotti would like more balance with a natural right sided attacker.
Both of these players would make excellent additions to the Inter squad, if all the recent rumours concerning Inter’s possible summer signings are anything to go by we can expect some big things come the start of next season
