Inter are hoping to net Alexis Sanchez from Udinese in the summer in a deal that won't see them hand over more than €15m in cash.
The Chilean sensation will be one of Europe's most wanted at the end of the season and it is no secret that Inter are keen.
Nerazzurri market chief Marco Branca has already held exploratory negotiations with the Udine outfit and he's working on a table to offer.
According to reports in the peninsula, Inter are trying to formulate a bid which will comprise of enough quality players to keep the cash aspect of the deal low.
Sanchez is reputedly valued at around €30m by the Bianconeri, but the European champions are hoping to only pay up to half that amount in money.
They hope to make up the deficit by offering a number of players with Philippe Coutinho said to be liked by Udinese boss Francesco Guidolin.
Inter could also offer a selection of promising youngsters, with Denis Alibec, Luca Caldirola and Lorenzo Crisetig possible pawns in the deal.
