Sunderland are looking into signing Inter Milan veteran Diego Milito in the summer, understands.
The 34-year-old was also linked with West Ham United in the January transfer window, though reports from Italy suggest he has his heart set on a return to his native Argentina in the summer.

Milito’s contract will expire at the end of the season, making him a free agent, and Sunderland manager Gus Poyet is seemingly keen to convince him to make the move to England.
The Black Cats could be set to revamp their attacking options next season, with loan star Fabio Borini set to return to Liverpool, while Steven Fletcher looks increasingly likely to be sold.
The priority now for Sunderland will be managing to survive relegation, but Poyet is already planning for next season if the club to manage to stay in the Premier League.

Milito was a star player for Inter during their treble winning season of 2009/10, scoring 30 goals including a brace in the Champions League final win over Bayern Munich, though he has often struggled with injuries since then.
