Inter Milan director of sport Piero Ausilio has confirmed interest in Sampdoria striker Mauro Icardi.

Inter defeated Samp 2-0 last night.

"Yes, we like him, there's no point denying the fact we want Icardi," Nerazzurri director of sport Ausilio told Sky Sport Italia.

"Sampdoria know this, but we decided to talk about it at the end of the season, waiting to see if all the parties achieve their objectives.

"We will not be meeting with Sampdoria directors today, as straight after the game we are returning to Milan."
