Internazionale are interested in signing Real Madrid midfielder Mahamadou Diarra.

Inter have recently been linked with a move for Arsenal's Gilberto Silva, but the player has denied any knowledge that he has heard from the club.

And while Inter sporting director Ernesto Paolillo insists the Serie A champions are not desperate to strengthen, he acknowledged that Mali midfielder Diarra is of interest.

"We don't look to the transfer market because we don't have significant injury problems, but we do like a few players, one of whom is Diarra," he told the Italian press.

Reports suggest Inter officials could be set to begin talks with Madrid, but it appears he is a target for the summer rather than January.
