Chelsea and Manchester City are interested in signing Alessandro Bastoni from Inter Milan, according to Calciomercato.
The 24-year-old has been a crucial player for the Nerazzurri in central defence and he recently penned a long-term contract.
This has not ended the speculation over his future and it is claimed that both Chelsea and City want to land his services.
The Premier League giants are planning to invest on a new centre-back in January and are prepared to test Inter’s resolve.
The San Siro giants have had plenty of financial problems and they could be tempted to sell him for a significant transfer fee.
A package in the region of €80 million could seriously test the resolve of the Milan club when the transfer window reopens.
Bastoni is currently happy with the proceedings in Italy, but he could be enticed to pursue a new challenge abroad in his career.
City could have the upper hand over Chelsea, considering they are currently vying for a fourth-straight Premier League title.
