Inter Milan owner Erick Thohir says they're determined to be careful with their summer transfer spending.

Thohir is wary of the prices demanded for the world's top players.

"We have to buy, but we have to be careful as well.

"Regardless, we already have players who I would consider as the backbone of the squad: Handanovic, Juan Jesus, Vidic, Hernanes, Kovacic, Palacio and Icardi.

"We will act with intelligence and care, and add to the squad that way. In some areas we're weak, but in others we're really strong.

"We want some sort of balance - both tactically and in terms of age.

"I don't want to mention any names because that wouldn't be good for Inter."
