AS Monaco midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia has been linked with moves to Arsenal, as per Metro, and Manchester City, as per Goal, in recent weeks but now there may be competition from Serie A clubs for his signature.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, AC Milan were reportedly closing in on an £18m move for the 22-year-old, but rivals Inter are now in the driving seat after they upped their offer to £20 million.
The report also suggests that Monaco have set a £25 million price tag, which could be too much for the Nerazzurri to compete with if this turns into a bidding war.
Monaco signed Kondogbia from La Liga side Sevilla in 2013 on a five-year contract. In his first season back in France, the 22-year-old helped his side secure Champions League qualification for the first time in a decade.
Shortly before returning to France at club level, Kondogbia was awarded his debut for the international first team, playing 63 minutes in a 0-0 friendly draw versus Belgium.
If Kondogbia decides to move to Serie A it would mean another potential target being crossed off Arsene Wenger’s list this summer.
