Inter Milan's sporting director Piero Ausilio was at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night to pursue his interest in Chelsea's Fernando Torres.

Ausilio warned last week that Torres's wages might be too expensive for Inter but the Spain striker remains high on the list of targets for the Italian giants as they rebuild under new Indonesian owner Erick Thohir.

Inter boss Walter Mazzarri is anxious to boost his attacking options and has also prioritised a defensive midfielder, with John Obi Mikel an option.
