Gazzetta dello Sport says Inter's transfer plans are on-hold as the future of coach Roberto Mancini remains undecided. However, with Mourinho expected to replace the Italian, it's understood he sees Quaresma as a priority signing for the summer market. Porto are demanding £25 million for the attacker.

Didier Drogba is no longer a priority, though Chelsea teammate Frank Lampard is on Mourinho's shopping list along with Barcelona's Deco.

However, while Inter are set to go Portuguese this summer, with Luis Figo also declaring he would stay with Mourinho in charge, the Scudetto champs won't drop their focus on Argentine talent.

Independiente midfielder Adrian Calello, 22, is under consideration by Inter's football staff.
