Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti is ready to shrug off missing out on Alexandre Pato by moving for Brazil U17 captain Lulinha.

Tgcom says Moratti will have scouts watch Lulinha in action during this month's U17 World Cup in South Korea with a view to teeing up a deal with Corinthians to bring the attacking midfielder to Italy next summer.

Inter directors are convinced Lulinha is a better prospect than new AC Milan signing Pato.
