Let go by Moyes in 2012, now worth €10m and wanted to partner Vidic

Sampdoria Fans

Inter Milan reportedly want former Everton player Shkodran Mustafi.

Manchester United gave David Moyes the boot at the end of the season, after a poor season in charge at Old Trafford. Of course, Moyes has given plenty of people the boot himself throughout his career.

One such player who was asked to look elsewhere for a job by Moyes was German youngster Shkodran Mustafi.

Everton snapped up the youngster from Hamburg in 2009 and played just one game for the club against BATE Borisov in the Europa League.

But by January 2012 Moyes had decided Mustafi would not cut it in the Premier League and let him join Italian side Sampdoria on a free transfer.

Since then he has come on leaps and bounds, emerging as one of the star players in the Italian league last season.

And his reward for an excellent season was a place in the German national team, called up after Marco Reus was ruled out, for the World Cup in Brazil

With that in mind Mustafi is now a wanted man. Inter Milan are believed to want another centre back to partner Nemanja Vidic, who is joining on a free from Manchester United this summer, and as competition for Juan Jesus, Andrea Ranocchia and Hugo Campagnaro.

Reports however suggest that Sampdoria will not be willing to even discuss a deal at a fee less than a handsome €10 million.

Mustafi has therefore seen his value sky-rocket since he left for Genoa in January 2012. Everton could have done with keeping him, as he could have been the perfect replacement for the ageing Sylvain Distin.

But now it looks like Mustafi could be off to the Nerazzuri for a fee Moyes probably never thought he would fetch.
