Inter Milan ace Diego Milito has hailed Argentine compatriot Carlos Tevez, believing he would fit Italian football well.
The Manchester City striker is being linked with the Serie A outfit as Inter hot-shot Samuel Eto'o edges nearer to a mega-money move to Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala.
While Inter president Massimo Moratti does not expect to be able to sign Tevez as a replacement, Milito would love to see his compatriot in the side.
He told Corriere dello Sport: "Eto'o is a great and, if he left, it will be a major loss for us, but Inter will go on and continued to win also when Ibrahimovic, Ronaldo and Vieri departed.
"Inter Milan always wants the best. Tevez is suitable for the Italian championship as he was suitable for the Argentinian, Brazilian and English league because he is a complete striker, with a winning mentality."
Moratti has admitted Diego Forlan of Atletico Madrid and Napoli's Ezequiel Lavezzi are under consideration by Inter and Milito thinks Forlan would be a good addition.
"Then there's Forlan: I have a great relationship with him because he is good friends with my brother (Gabriel) and (Esteban) Cambiasso. All three played for Independiente while I was at Racing, we faced each other many times, even at youth level.
"Diego is a great champion and a great guy."
As regards speculation linking Milito with Turkish outfit Galatasary, the striker insists he wants to stay with his current club.
"I am very well at Inter, I have three years of the contract and have no intention of leaving. I'm quiet and I have in mind the desire to make a great season," he said.
"The interest of Galatasary? I read about it on the newspapers, but I don't know anything."
