According to SportItalia, Inter chairman Massimo Moratti believes the recent confirmation that Liverpool will not be in the Champions League next season has opened the door for Fernando Torres to leave the club.
Despite the Spaniard's reported £70 million transfer tag, Moratti is not scared and will lodge a bid for a player he has long admired at the end of the season.
Meanwhile, according to Mediaset, Carlos Tevez's recent run-ins with Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini have alerted the Nerazzurri to his availability, and they will look to lure him to the Giuseppe Meazza in the summer.
The reports suggest that out-of-favour Inter forward Mario Balotelli might well be used as a makeweight in either deal, depending on which club they can persuade to take him.
