Italian Serie A giants Inter Milan have stepped up their interest in Ajax Amsterdam defender Nicolas Tagliafico after club director Piero Ausilio watched him in action during the Champions League game on Tuesday night.
Inter Milan director Ausilio was in attendance for the Champions League semifinal first leg clash between Tottenham Hotspur and Ajax Amsterdam.
According to the report from popular Italian news portal Calciomercato, Piero Ausilio ran the rule over Tagliafico.
It was also revealed that the Inter Milan director scouted Tottenham Hotspur defender Jan Vertoghen.
Ajax Amsterdam midfielder Donny Van Der Beek and Ajax forward Hakim Ziyech are also transfer options for Inter Milan but their transfer fees could be out of reach for the Italians.
Nicolas Tagliafico has been previously linked with a summer move to clubs like Spanish giants Real Madrid and the Premier League duo of Newcastle United and Arsenal.
The Argentine international has impressed a great deal for the Dutch Eredivisie giants this season especially in the Champions League.
He impressed again for Ajax in the 1-0 win over Spurs on Tuesday night.
The aforementioned Van Der Beek scored the only goal of the game to put Ajax Amsterdam in a fantastic position to seal a spot in the Champions League final in Madrid.
