Inter: Deco & Carvalho fees "too high"

MILAN, July 8 - Italian champions Inter Milan are not prepared to meet Chelsea's asking price for centre back Ricardo Carvalho and Portuguese compatriot Deco.

"Chelsea's request is too high. Therefore talks at the moment are stalled," Inter's transfer consultant Lele Oriali told Italy's Sky television late on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Inter said in a statement they had signed 21-year-old Brazilian midfielder Kerlon from Chievo.
