Inter look likely to go into the transfer market in January, and the latest rumours link them with Chelsea’s Juan Mata.
The Premier League side have been rumoured to hold an interest in Fredy Guarin and Andrea Ranocchia.
And as such, according to Corriere dello Sport, the Nerazzurri will try to make the most of those connections by tabling a bid for the Spaniard.
Mata has been frustrated this term under Jose Mourinho, finding himself on the bench for the big games, with a move away from Stamford Bridge looking likely.
The attacker could be available for as little as €15m
