Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti has confirmed he is interested in signing Alexis Sanchez but will not pay over the odds for the Udinese winger.
Press Pass: Serie A rumour mill
Sanchez has had another fine season in Serie A and the 22-year-old has been targeted by the Nerazzurri as a possible acquisition this summer.
A number of clubs including Premier League sides Chelsea and Manchester City have also been linked with the Chile international and Udinese have already received an offer of €35million for the midfielder.
Moratti claims Inter will not be held to ransom by Udinese but admits they are certainly interested in bringing Sanchez to the San Siro.
"People are talking about the ongoing negotiations with Udinese and we certainly are interested in Sanchez, but we're also looking at other players," he told Sky Sport 24.
"I think we're very strong in attack and I do not think that is one of the areas that we'll be trying to strengthen particularly.
"Any good deal is welcome - by all means, let's bring in a few more quality players - but not at excessive prices."
He added: "I rate Sanchez very highly and it's no secret that we're speaking to Udinese to try and work something out.
"However, I do believe the player still has a bit to prove. I think when Ronaldo and [Zlatan] Ibrahimovic joined us they were a few notches further up."
