Italian side Inter Milan are reportedly targeting a move for Manchester City left-back Aleksandark Kolarov, according to the Daily Express.

The 27-year-old has been linked with a number of Serie A teams over the last few months after a difficult time in the Premier League with Manchester City, including Italian champions Juventus.

The Serbian has found himself on the bench for much of this season as a backup to first-choice City left-back Gael Clichy, and seems unlikely to make himself first choice under new manager Manuel Pellegrini, who is planning an overhaul of the squad when he joins the club from Malaga this summer.

Kolarov initially joined City from Lazio for £16million in 2010, and has earned a reputation for scoring some important goals from long range shots and free-kicks, though he has often being shown to be lacking in defensive awareness and discipline.

Inter are keen to strengthen their squad this summer after a poor season in which they could only finish 9th in Serie A, and they may need a new left-back with the possibility of Alvaro Pereira joining Tottenham.

A move back to Italy could appeal to Kolarov, as he is more likely to be played in his favoured position of wing-back, which is used more commonly by Italian teams.
