Inter Milan are ready to pounce for Uruguayan superkid Kevin Mendez.

The 17 year-old Penarol striker was expected to move to Barcelona this summer, but that deal has collapsed after the Spanish giants' recent transfer ban.

Sky Italia says Inter are now ready to step in and snap up Mendez, who has been likened to Liverpool striker Luis Suarez.

The Nerazzurri had a loan proposal rejected by Penarol in January, but are now back at the negotiating table about a cash deal.
