Il Corriere dello Sport is reporting that Inter are showing interest in Bayern Munich midfielder Luiz Gustavo.
The Neroazzurri have made signing a high-profile midfielder a priority in the summer transfer window, but it appears they are again set to miss out on long-term target Paulinho.
It is for that reason that Inter officials are turning their attention towards Bayern star Luiz Gustavo.
The Brazilian has lost his place in the starting line-up following the arrival of Javi Martinez in the summer, and the situation is likely to get worse now that Bayern have agreed to sign Sebastian Rode from Eintracht.
Inter plan to take advantage of the situation and lure the 25-year-old to Giuseppe Meazza, although that is going to be no easy task.
Luiz Gustavo has spent last two and a a half years at Alianz Arena, scoring 5 goals in 61 Bundesliga matches, but he has only started 14 league fixtures this term.
