Inter Milan are tracking Chelsea defender Malang Sarr and are ready to offer him a chance to kick start his career again.
The 22-year old joined thew West London club from Nice 15 months ago, and there were high hopes for him when he arrived at Stamford Bridge. He was given a five year contract, but was then shipped out on loan to Porto last season.
He belatedly made his debut for Chelsea in the Carabao Cup, and his only Premier League start came against Brentford when both Antonio Rüdiger and Thiago Silva were unavailable.
Now, he could be set to move on loan to the Serie A side, with the Italian media reporting that talks have already been held between the two clubs.
And Inter may be looking to include an option to buy into any agreement, for a fee of around £13 million.
Sarr could be set to follow in the footsteps of another defender Fikayo Tomori who also moved to Serie A on loan from Chelsea in January, this time with AC Milan, before that move was made permananet6 this summer.
