Internazionale coach Roberto Mancini has confirmed that he is interested in signing Arsenal midfielder Alexander Hleb.
Hleb has been linked with a summer move to Inter since meeting with officials from the club on the eve of Arsenal’s Champions League encounter with Milan earlier this season.
Mancini says the Arsenal man, along with Genoa’s Abdoulay Konko and Udinese’s Gokhan Inler, are among Inter’s transfer targets.
“We have already spoken about the players we would like to sign,” Mancini told the Corriere dello Sport.
“We are interested in Hleb, Inler and Konko.”
Meanwhile, Mancini has played down reports of a conflict between himself and Inter president Massimo Moratti.
Mancini’s position at the club has been the subject of debate since he announced after Inter’s Champions League defeat to Liverpool that he would step down at the end of the season – a threat subsequently withdrawn. Reports in Italy claim that Inter have lined up a move for former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho to replace him at Giuseppe Meazza.
However, Mancini insists that he continues to enjoy a good relationship with Moratti.
“Between me and Moratti there are no problems and everything is quiet,” added Mancini.
