Bolton Wanderers are being encouraged by Inter Milan to bid for Adriano.

The Brazil international is on-loan in Brazil at Sao Paulo this season and has attracted interest from Trotters boss Gary Megson.

Inter president Massimo Moratti is aware that Megson has cash to spend after selling Nicolas Anelka to Chelsea for £15 million and is keen to discuss Adriano's sale with the Premiership club.

Tuttosport says Moratti is eager to find a buyer for Adriano in order to fund a bid for Barcelona star Ronaldinho.
