Alexis Sanchez could be on his way out of Udinese after Inter declared an interest in signing the tricky attacker, a report in Gazzetta dello Sport claims.

The Italian giants are desperate to add some more creativity to their squad in the winter transfer window and newly appointed head coach Leonardo supposedly sees the 22-year-old Sanchez as the perfect signing.

Recent reports suggested that Inter were closely monitoring the winger's situation and the Champions League holders are now believed to be ready to make an offer for Sanchez later this week.

Sanchez has developed into a key player at Udinese in the past couple of seasons and is continually being linked with a move away from his current club after impressing at the 2010 World Cup for Chile.

Inter reportedly face stiff competition from clubs such as Manchester United and Zenit St Petersburg in the race for Sanchez's signature.

The attacker won't come on the cheap and an offer in the region of €25 million (£20.7m) could be needed to lure him away from Udinese.
