Inter ready to include Coutinho in deal for Udinese's Alexis Sanchez - report

Inter are considering including Brazilian youngster Coutinho in a deal that would bring Udinese star Alexis Sanchez to the Giuseppe Meazza.
Brazilian youngster Coutinho could be on his way out of Serie A champions Inter at the end of the season, as the Nerazzurri are ready to include the attacking midfielder in a deal that would see Alexis Sanchez leave Udinese for the Giuseppe Meazza, Sky Sport reports.

The highly-rated Chile international is one of the most sought-after players in Europe and Inter are keen to add him to their squad in the summer transfer window.

Udinese are keen to hold on to their star player, though, and have reportedly set a €30 million asking price for the rising star.

Inter are reluctant to meet Udinese's hefty demands and are hopeful that the Zebrette will lower their asking price if they include the 18-year-old in the deal.

Coutinho joined Inter from Vasco Da Gama in the summer of 2010, but the one-time capped Brazil international has yet to make an impact at the Champions League holders.

It remains to be seen whether Udinese are interested in Inter's offer, though, as clubs such as Chelsea and Manchester United are also interested in Sanchez, and the Premier League giants could well meet their asking price.
