Inter in Lindelof race

Inter have an interest in Benfica's Victor Lindelof, but much depends on what their competitors Napoli and Chelsea do.

The campaign to take Juan Jesus from Sporting FC is not the only business that the Nerazzurri have in Portugal, as they recently identified a strong central defender to flank Jeison Murillo and Miranda.

According to A Bola, Lindelof must now be added to the list of candidates being considered for the Biscione's back-line, alongside the likes of Eliaquim Mangala, Ezequiel Garay and Danny Blind.

While Benfica are believed to have no interest in selling the player, a buy-out clause worth €30m could give suitors their way in.

It remains to be seen what the other teams interested in Lindelof will do, as Napoli and Chelsea are thought to be in the race as well.

The London team in particular are after Kalidou Koulibaly or Torino's Nikola Maksimovic, but they could turn decisively on Lindelof should nothing come of it, and Inter may have trouble beating their offers.
