Inter Milan are reportedly ready to prioritising the transfer of Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum.
The Netherlands international has just over six months remaining on his contract at Anfield, putting him in a position where he can hold discussions with foreign clubs in January.
While Barcelona are also regarded as a potential destination, Inter have emerged as strong competition for the La Liga giants in recent weeks.
According to FcInterNews, club officials have already made contact with the 30-year-old’s agent ahead of formal discussions next month.
Much could depend on whether Inter are able to part ways with Christian Eriksen, who finds himself down the pecking order at San Siro.
Wijnaldum is yet to indicate whether he is tempted to extend his Liverpool stay, a situation which has left several teams scrambling for his signature.
