Monday’s Corriere dello Sport claims Manchester United attacker Henrikh Mkhitaryan has already given the green light to joining Inter.
According to the newspaper, Inter are “working hard” on a deal to sign Mkhitaryan and have been in touch with his agent Mino Raiola.
However, it remains to be seen whether the Armenian would leave United on a loan or permanent basis.
The 28-year-old has fallen out of favour at Old Trafford, with BBC Sport reporting there has been “a breakdown of trust” between him and manager Jose Mourinho.
The Nerazzurri are expected to be busy in January, but Il Corriere notes they will not “go crazy” as they must “self-finance” themselves in the market.
Consequently, they would be looking to cut short Alessandro Bastoni’s two-year loan spell at Atalanta, as opposed to investing in a defender.
They could also sell Joao Mario to Paris Saint-Germain, the midfielder keen to play more ahead of the World Cup, and swap him for Javier Pastore.
