Internazionale to buy Italian

Inter will attempt to rebuild in the summer by making bids for three top Italian players, it is being reported.

The Nerazzurri are expected to freshen their squad up at the end of the season after losing the Scudetto to city rivals Milan.

After already netting Giampaolo Pazzini in January, it is being claimed that two of his Italy teammates will be targeted.

The first will be Riccardo Montolivo, the classy playmaker whose contract talks with Fiorentina have stalled.

The former Atalanta youth player will be sold by the Viola should they not agree to extend his contract, which currently expires in 2012, before the transfer window closes.

Bologna's Emiliano Viviano, who is Gigi Buffon's understudy with the Azzurri, is another possible target.

Inter already own 50 per cent in the goalkeeper and may bring him to San Siro as an alternative to Brazilian international Julio Cesar.

The third Italian who Inter are monitoring is Andrea Poli, the Under-21 international midfielder who may leave Doria if they are relegated.

Inter have had a reputation in the past for buying foreign players.
