Inter Milan are in pole position to sign Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan this summer with the Premier League champions willing to accept as little as £21.5 million in the summer, as reported by Tuttomercatoweb.
With just over 12 months left on his deal at the Etihad, Gundogan has been coy about his future recently, admitting to Sky Sports that he has a decision to make ahead of what is likely to be the last big contract of his career at the top level.
TMW reports that Inter Milan are looking for a new midfielder and Gundogan could be a lot cheaper than their alternative targets, including Brescia’s Sandro Tonali and Cagliari enforcer Nicolo Barella.
It is claimed that the Nerazzurri are willing to offer the German international a four-year contract worth around £5 million a year.
And Manchester City, fully aware that Gundogan will be a free agent in 14 months, could accept £21.5 million for a player who has been in and out of Pep Guardiola’s starting XI over the last few years.
Monaco are keen too while Bayern Munich also want to bring the former Dortmund play-maker back to the Bundesliga, TMW adds.
