Club president confirms that discussions are underway but that the player, who has been heavily linked with Manchester City, still has to prove he is of sufficient qualityInter president Massimo Moratti has revealed talks have been taking place with Udinese over a potential move for Alexis Sanchez as he confirms a concrete interest in the playmaker.
The 22-year-old Sanchez has been linked with the Nerazzurri and Manchester City in recent weeks, but it seems Inter are doing all the talking, despite City having watched him in action earlier this month, as revealed by Goal.com.
"I speak of Sanchez and I honestly consider him to be a good player. It's no mystery that we are speaking with Udinese so we can understand the situation," Moratti told Sky Sport Italia.
"Of course, the player still has to prove himself. I think when Ronaldo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic joined Inter, they had done something more in their career."
And with talks ongoing, the president suggested other players were also under observation.
He continued: "There are those speaking of negotiations with Udinese. Of course, we are looking at Sanchez, but also other players.
"I think we are strong up front, and I do not see this position as a priority to reinforce. But any market operation which improves the squad is welcome, though not at exaggerated prices."
Sanchez scored 12 in 31 games for Udinese this season and helped contribute countless assists.
