Internazionale chief Massimo Moratti has dropped the clearest hint that the club are keen on bringing unsettled Chelsea midfielder Juan Sebastian Veron back to Serie A.

Veron has expressed his desire to quit Chelsea after a nightmare year at Stamford Bridge.

The Argentine midfielder has seen his season blighted by a series of injuries and whenever he has played he has not produced his best.

The former Lazio and Parma schemer is happy that Inter want to sign him and he is keen to return to Italy after a mixed time in England with Manchester United and Chelsea.

Inter have also been linked with Edgar Davids, but Moratti has given a strong indication that Veron is their top target.

"I think our directors are looking around for the best players and we have been linked to Edgar Davids and Veron," said Moratti.

"But seeing as we can't bring both in and we have already approached one of them, it looks like the rumours about the other star are unfounded."

Moratti also admitted that Inter coach Alberto Zaccheroni will not have much money available and ruled out a move for Roma's Emerson.

"I really think it would be difficult to sign the Roma midfielder, as we have made it perfectly clear to Zaccheroni that the financial situation is a little tricky."
