Inter seek Silva deal
Reports in Italy say that Inter Milan are considering an offer for Leicester midfielder Adrien Silva.
The Portuguese signed for the Foxes from Sporting Lisbon in August 2017 although a famous fumble with his registration meant his papers came in 14 seconds late, so he was forced to wait until January 2018 for his debut.
Silva has since struggled to establish himself, making just a single Premier League start this season on the opening night against Manchester United.
The 29-year-old's last outing came in the EFL Cup against Southampton and a move away has been heavily mooted.
Bordeaux, where he played much of his youth football, having been born in Angouleme, are thought to be keen along with Roma and Genoa.
Another Serie A club is now said to be making inroads and it is Inter Milan who are being heavily linked with his signature.
Leicester paid £22m for the Euro 2016 winner 17 months ago and will be keen to recoup much of their outlay.
With that unlikely, a structured deal involving an initial loan and option to buy could be on the cards if the Nerazzurri decide to make their move.
