Inter Milan have confirmed their intention to sign Portuguese pair Deco and Ricardo Carvalho from Chelsea.
Both players have been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge this summer.
"(Inter coach Jose) Mourinho has asked us for Deco and Carvalho and we are working towards making him happy," said Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti in an interview with Gazzetta dello Sport.
"Our wish is to sign both players and I have seen that the players' intention is to join us.
"We still haven't reached an agreement with Chelsea but I think we will do in a short time."
