Report: Porto Striker Lisandro Lopez On Inter’s Radar

The Nerazzurri are expected to overhaul their striking department this summer and ‘Mou’ has set his sights on the 26-year-old Argentine.

Tuttosport reports this morning that Inter are mulling over a move for Porto hitman Lisandro Lopez, as compatriots Julio Cruz and Hernan Crespo look to be headed for the exit door.

Both Argentines are deemed surplus to requirements by Nerazzurri coach Jose Mourinho and have been on the fringes of the side throughout the season.

There are rumours that Cruz is being chased by Napoli, while Crespo could complete a shock return to Lazio, and the Italian champions are looking to Lopez to bolster their front line.

The ex-Racing Club man has been plying his trade at Porto since 2005 and has a contract until 2010, but his agent recently admitted there is no chance he will sign an extension and has already been in contact with other sides.

Inter are also expected to rescind Adriano’s contract by the end of this week, meaning that only Mario Balotelli and Zlatan Ibrahimovic will stay on for next season.

However, Robert Acquafresca should return from his loan spell at Cagliari, and press reports suggest that the Nerazzurri are close to capturing Genoa star Diego Milito.
