With Stramaccioni locked in, Inter Milan go for Lavezzi, Lucas

Inter Milan are ready to step up their transfer plans with Andrea Stramaccioni now confirmed as coach for next season.

Mediaset says Inter's summer market strategy will intensify with Napoli ace Ezequiel Lavezzi and Sao Paulo star Lucas top of their shopping list. The attacking midfield pair have also gained the approval of Stramaccioni, who feels both players would fit neatly into his system.

Mauro Zarate will be sent back to Lazio, while fellow strikers Diego Forlan and Giampaolo Pazzini, along with defender Andrea Ranocchia, are all set to be sold.

Inter are already locked in talks with Napoli over a deal for Lavezzi, with negotiations kicking off on Monday during a Milan meeting featuring Azzurri president Aurelio de Laurentiis. In Lucas' case, Inter GM Marco Branca has scheduled a meeting with agent Wagner Ribeiro next week to discuss terms.
