Chelsea are yet to make a decision over Davide Zappacosta’s future at Stamford Bridge ahead of next season.
The right-back joined the Blues during the previous transfer in January but failed to get regular action as Antonio Conte preferred Victor Moses ahead of him throughout the season.
With new manager — Maurizio Sarri — set to take over from the Italian manager, it remains unknown if the 26-year-old will be given much chance to showcase his qualities in the upcoming season.
Meanwhile, despite being a fringe player in the Blues squad, Italian Serie A club Inter Milan have identified the player as one the defenders they want to get this summer as part of their decision to make wholesome changes to the squad left behind by their outgoing manager Joao Cancelo and his assistant Davide Santon.
According to Premium Sports and Gazzetta dello Sport in one of their respective reports last month, the Blues have placed a €30m price tag on his signature but that seems too high for Inter to release.
The latest report surrounding the defender’s future, according to Tuttosport, suggests that the former Scuddeto Champions are very much keen on luring him to the San Siro Stadium but they are willing to beat down Chelsea’s asking price to the nearest minimum.
Should Chelsea fail to give them a positive response as regards the player’s deal, the Serie A side are reportedly going to cool interest in him while they turn attention to Manchester United’s want-away defender Matteo Darmian, who is valued at €20m by the Old Trafford outfits.
Meanwhile, Sime Vrsjalko and Aleix Vidal are being tracked by Inter Milan, who recently returned to the European scene for the first time in more than five years.
