Sunderland have reportedly done a deal for Zdravko Kuzmanovic, but the Inter man is waiting for an Everton bid.
According to Mediaset, the midfielder has yet to give the green light for a loan move to Sunderland as he is also on the radar of the Merseysiders.
The 25-year-old only joined the Italian club in January from Stuttgart, but his future at San Siro is in doubt – even if he featured in the 2-0 win over Genoa yesterday.
The Serbian international has also played for Fiorentina in Serie A.
