After being trumped by AC Milan for David Suazo, Moratti is determined to hit back in the summer market by bringing an exciting foreigner to Serie A next season.

Leggo says Moratti is trawling the Spanish market and has Robinho and Real Madrid teammate Antonio Cassano high on his shopping list. Brazil international Robinho is similar in style to Suazo and coach Roberto Mancini would welcome the attacking midfielder's arrival.

Valencia striker David Villa is also under consideration by Moratti, though his £70 million asking price will put off the oil baron.
