Yes, Inter want Paulinho and there is no doubt about it. However, due to the complicated nature of negotiations (high transfer fee and lack of time), Inter already have in mind several names for the midfield. According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, there are three alternatives if mission for Paulinho falls through. The first one is Anderlecht midfielder Lucas Biglia who would only arrive at Inter on loan because they do not have any intention of paying the eight million asking fee for the Argentinian midfielder. Second is Radja Nainggolan but dealing with Massimo Cellino, Cagliari president, is anything but easy. Finally we have Zdravko Kuzmanovic, the low-cost idea of Stuttgart with whom, he has an expiring contract in June.
