Lampard heads Inter target list

Frank Lampard scores for Chelsea
Lampard postponed negotiations over a new deal until the end of the season

Italian champions Inter Milan have revealed that signing Chelsea's Frank Lampard is their priority this summer.

New Inter manager Jose Mourinho is keen to capture the England midfielder from his former club, with whom Lampard has yet to sign a new contract extension.

Inter president Massimo Moratti told Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport: "He's our number one objective. Mourinho likes Lampard a lot."

Moratti hinted Inter may have already started negotiations with the Blues.

He added: "Has there been contact with Chelsea? I think there has but I don't know yet."

Lampard's current deal expires next summer and both the 29-year-old and the London club said last month that they were confident of striking a deal.
