Inter Milan coach Claudio Ranieri has told president Massimo Moratti to revive his push for Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez.

Ranieri is a big fan of Tevez and feels his energy and goal scoring ability is just what Inter have missed since losing Samuel Eto'o to Anzhi.

Inter president Moratti tried to land Tevez over the summer, but baulked at City's asking price.

The Nerazzurri are banking on his price dropping with the Argie struggling to get off the bench so far this season.
