Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti has admitted admiration for Corinthians star Paulinho.

Paulinho is being linked with Inter as a replacement for Galatasaray signing Wesley Sneijder.

"Let's take one step at a time. We've just done this, let's now see what we need to do," Moratti said.

"Paulinho is a player that, with his attributes, is always useful. But the cost does come into things too.

"I don't know if we'll make a move in the market, it depends if it's worth it. Everything's so expensive in Italy, so I don't think anything will happen.

"We'll take a measured approach."
