TuttoMercatoWeb claims the Serie A outfit sent representatives to watch the Ukraine international in action during tonight’s Europa League quarter-final, second leg clash with Fiorentina.

The San Siro giants hold a genuine interest in luring the player to Italy when the transfer window opens, from under the noses of Premier League rivals Chelsea and Liverpool.

According to the Metro, the Premier League leaders are battling their Merseyside counterparts for the acquisition of the 25-year-old, who is left-footed but capable of operating on both flanks.

Yarmolenko has netted five times in 12 appearances for his club so far this term.

While Inter do not have the same financial muscle as Chelsea and Liverpool, and would therefore not usually pose a big threat to any potential transfer deal, Yarmolenko only has one year left on his contract, which means he could be available for a relatively low fee.
