Inter Milan chief Massimo Moratti has refused to rule out a move for Liverpool midfielder Javier Mascherano.
European champions Inter have been continually linked with a bid for Mascherano, with Rafa Benitez a big admirer of the Argentine.
Mascherano is thought to be considering his future at Liverpool and is open to a move to Italy with Inter.
Moratti has admitted he is a fan of Mascherano's and has hinted he could move for him if he believes the player could add something to Inter's star-studded squad.
"Mascherano? I know he has always played well, he has a strong character, is a smart guy," Moratti told Sky Italia.
"We have so many players in that role good and intelligent. We'll see if he can help us in terms of technical tactics. "
