Inter Milan are preparing a move for Barcelona and Spanish fullback Jordi Alba.
Mundo Deportivo reports that the Serie A champions have lost Ashley Young, who re-joined former club, Aston Villa last week on a free transfer, while Aleksandar Kolarov’s deal is set to expire at the end of the month.
The Italian side’s £250million loan from Oaktree Capital has boosted the finances and prevented the club from financial ruin but they still need to raise a further £87m from player sales and also impose a 20 per cent wage reduction among the first-team squad.
Inter are set to make a bid for the 32-year-old and are willing to involve players in the deal.
The report adds the desire to sign Alba comes just 12 months after they attempted to recruit his Barcelona team-mate Junior Firpo as part of the deal to bring Argentina star Lautaro Martinez to the Nou Camp.
