Inter Milan sporting director Piero Ausilio says that the Italian giants are monitoring Santos star Ganso, as Liverpool circle the star in preparation for the summer transfer period.
"Ganso? Much has been said about AC Milan's interest in him,” the Inter Milan sporting director said.
“We are monitoring him, but he has significant physical problems.
"To say that Inter are interested in Ganso is false. He is a good player, but nothing has happened."
According to talkSPORT, Ganso has a £45 million price tag, and is desperately trying to get the release fee from Brazilian club Santos lowered to £30 million for the summer so that he can make a move to European football.
For such a high price, Liverpool would be taking a gamble on the 21 year old, and although the Anfield club spent a combined £57.8 million on Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez in the January transfer window, sales of Liverpool star Fernando Torres and Ryan Babel for £56 million came to balance the books.
Liverpool also reported a £20 million loss over the 2009-2010 financial period, and Kenny Dalglish has said that the club are looking to try and spend on one or two quality players in the summer rather than taking big money gambles.
Inter Milan meanwhile doesn’t seem to have the same spending restrictions set for the summer, and could be set to snare the youngster, who has starred for Santos alongside Chelsea target Neymar this season.
