Italian club Inter will follow up on interest in Manchester City defender Eliaquim Mangala by making an attempt to sign the Frenchman, The Sun reports.
The 27-year-old, who has just recovered from a serious knee injured sustained in his second match on loan at Everton, has no future at the Etihad Stadium and is out of contract at the end of the season.
Like so many Serie A clubs, Inter are bargain hunting and have already contacted representatives of Mangala ahead of a potential deal that could even see the former FC Porto star join on loan in January before the Italians make the move permanent with a free transfer in the summer.
The Nerazzurri could face competition from the Premier League however, with Wolves also said to be keen on Mangala, and the player himself prefers to stay in England despite rejecting moves to the likes of Crystal Palace in recent years.
Wolves are also closely associated with Portuguese super-agent Jorge Mendes, who is Mangala’s main representative, and that could give them an edge should they make their own efforts to sign the City title-winner.
