Serie A side Inter Milan are weighing up a potential Summber bid for Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel, after the Nigerian has fallen out of the first-team picture since the return of Jose Mourinho.
Mikel has fallen behind the likes of Frank Lampard, Nemanja Matic and Ramires in The Blues’ first-team set-up, and a Summer transfer is likely to happen for the Nigerian due to Mourinho wanting to clear out a lot of his squad in order to bring in new faces.
The holding-midfielder could be one of 15 players leaving Stamford Bridge at the end of the season, and Inter are currently the firm favourites to land the 27-year-old.
Inter are keen to strengthen their side this year after a poor campaign in Italy, and with Nemanja Vidic already coming from Manchester United, they will be keen to add more experienced players to their line-up.
If they fail in their pursuit for Mikel, their other targets are Javi Garcia of Manchester City and Tottenham’s Sandro.
