Inter Milan have confirmed their interest in Udinese wing-back Mauricio Isla.

The Nerazzurri have long been one of those clubs linked with the right-sided midfielder, who is currently recovering from knee ligament damage.

"Mauricio Isla is a very interesting talented player who has played for years at the highest level of the Italian League," La Tercera report Inter director Marco Branca as saying.

"He is one of our goals for next season, but we have not yet entered formal negotiations with Udinese for his transfer."
