The Nerazzurri chief confirmed that his side are keen to sign the striker, but stressed that the club will not overspend in order to land the Argentina international
The Argentine attacker has been strongly linked with a new challenge in the summer with the Nerazzurri understood to be one of the sides vying for his services.
Moratti has admitted that he is looking to take Lavezzi to San Siro but only at a reasonable price.
"Right now I think that for this transfer to happen, negotiations will have to be handled very calmly and always considering the financial side," he told Solo Inter.
Meanwhile, a major talking point in Italy has been the fact that Juventus are reportedly thinking about adding a third star to their shirts to celebrate the 2011-12 Scudetto when official records say they have won just 28 league crowns, and Moratti has said that he is against the idea.
"I think that if Juventus add a third star, it will be a fantasy, because every club will be able to do what they want," he explained.
The Nerazzurri supremo also commented on Wesley Sneijder's situation, saying that the Dutchman is a key part of the team, but refused to commit Diego Forlan's future to the club.
"We consider Sneijder to be a central part of what Inter's future could be, so there is no problem with him," Moratti added.
"Forlan? Inter's players remain happy, but we will see if it is better for them to stay or leave and go elsewhere.
"Lucio? He said these last few days that he was a bit confused, so we think that it will be better for him to change clubs."
