Inter are reportedly looking to offload Christian Eriksen and Marcelo Brozovic to create space for Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante at San Siro.
The Telegraph reveals the Blues have rejected a swap deal including the two Inter players, also because former coach Antonio Conte is at the other end of the trade.
The newspaper reports Inter are willing to offer Eriksen and Brozovic to get the French midfielder, but Conte’s controversial farewell has left a scar and the Londoners are not willing to enter negotiations with the Nerazzurri over an exchange deal.
Kante is at the top of Conte’s wish list, but the €60m price tag means Inter must sell to afford the former Leicester City man.
Eriksen and Brozovic could still be the key men to generate the required resources for a potential operation.
