president Massimo Moratti has given a strong indication that his side are looking to sign Parma
striker Sebastian Giovinco.
The Nerazzurri's sporting director, Piero Ausilio
, revealed at the weekend that initial talks with Parma had taken place
with a view to signing the 25-year-old, who is co-owned by Juventus.
It is understood that Giovinco is now open to joining Inter
after initially expressing doubts about such a move because of his ties with the Bianconeri, while Moratti has hinted that he is eager to bring the Italy international to San Siro.
"Giovinco? Who would not like a player like him?," the Inter chief told reporters on Tuesday.
Maicon has been heavily linked with the Nerazzurri exit door in the last few days, with a return to Brazil or a transfer to Paris Saint-Germain mooted as strong possibilities, but Moratti was coy on his star right-back's future.
"Maicon to PSG? First we must decide if we want to sell him, but I have seen that they are building a super team," Moratti added.
