Inter have made an offer for Barcelona defender Dani Alves, reports in the Spanish Press suggest.
The Brazil international has been heavily linked with a switch away from Camp Nou this summer, with his contract set to expire next year.
Paris Saint-Germain were thought to be in the driving seat, but have instead turned their attentions to Real Madrid’s Angel Di Maria.
As such, the flying full-back is looking for opportunities elsewhere – and Catalan daily Sport has insisted that the Nerazzurri are a genuine option.
Erick Thohir’s men would be able to afford any transfer fee, considering his contract situation, but are currently baulking at the player’s wages.
Alves earns around €6m per season from Barca, a fee the San Siro outfit are unwilling to pay. Sport though, believe that a deal could be struck.
