Stramaccioni dreams of Lucas

Brazilian teenage sensation Lucas Moura is reportedly a dream transfer target for Inter boss Andrea Stramaccioni.

The 19-year-old has been highly rated since bursting on to the scene with Sao Paulo and Stramaccioni has noted his brilliant performance for Brazil in their loss to Argentina at the weekend.

Inter are in the market for a new No 10 despite the arrival of Rodrigo Palacio, as Stramaccioni wants to freshen up his team for next season. 

Wesley Sneijder’s below-par campaign is another driving force for Inter’s new Coach to bring younger players into the club.

It is fully expected that Sao Paulo would demand a huge fee should they discuss Lucas’ sale, but Inter see him as a more realistic option than Parma and Juventus’ co-owned Sebastian Giovinco.
