Inter are not letting go of Cardiff City and Chile defender Gary Medel, raising their option to €7m.
The Nerazzurri have been captivated by Medel’s World Cup performances and want him to help lead the new-look defence this season.
According to Sky Sport Italia, Inter are raising their offer to a loan deal with option to buy worth €7m (£6.4m).
However, that is still below Cardiff’s asking price of a €10m option (£8m).
Walter Mazzarri and his club hope Medel can put pressure on Cardiff to accept these terms.
