Inter Milan owner Erick Thohir has reportedly refuted claims that his side have made contact with Manchester United’s Javier Hernandez and are primed for a summer move for Fernando Torres.
According to 101 Great Goals, which contradicts reports in the Daily Star speculating that the Serie A giants had made headway in potential moves for both Hernandez and his Chelsea counterpart, Thohir denied his club’s involvement with either man.
“At the end of the season we will evaluate everything, both the young players and the more experienced ones. We want to build a strong squad for the future with a view not just to next season but to the next three,” he is quoted as having said.
“I think he (Chicharito) is a good player. But we haven’t spoken to either him or Fernando Torres.”
Differing reports have suggested that both of the Premier League strikers could be on their way to other European leagues this summer. Torres has been linked with a Chelsea exit as Jose Mourinho prepares to bring in a new big-name forward, whilst Hernandez is said to be unhappy with the limited game-time afforded to him behind the likes of Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie.
Inter have already confirmed the capture of United captain Nemanja Vidic, and are believed to be keen on capturing more players from England’s elite division, though they haven’t given any indication of special intent to take Hernandez and Torres to the San Siro.
