Former Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini is set to raid his old club this summer to reshape Inter Milan with Samir Nasri having emerged as a prime target.
City midfielders Yaya Toure and James Milner are also on Inter Milan’s radar.
Mancini signed all three players during his spell at the Etihad Stadium and they were key figures when the club won the Premier League title for the first time in 2012.
Inter have struggled this season and languish in mid-table in Serie A with a clear need to strengthen their squad.
Mancini is still likely to be given the mandate to bring in new faces and Milner, who will be a free agent this summer, has long been linked with a move to Inter or Liverpool.
Toure is also wanted by Mancini but his £200,000-plus wages could prove a problem for Inter and the Ivory Coast international may well end up at Paris Saint-Germain.
PSG could also be interested in Nasri but FFP complications may restrict their activity.
It was Mancini who lured Nasri from Arsenal in 2011 for £25million and he managed to get the best out of the Frenchman.
However Nasri, like Toure, has suffered a big dip in form and purpose this season.
With City needing to sell several players in order to freshen up their squad within FFP parameters, it now seems to Nasri is up for grabs but Inter could face competition from Juventus.
