Italians targeting double Chelsea transfer raid

Italian heavyweights Inter Milan are looking at Chelsea duo Mohamed Salah and Juan Cuadrado ahead of the looming summer transfer window, according to reports from The London Evening Standard.

The Blues are set for a big few months of negotiations with players they own and players they’re chasing, and it appears that they may lose two of their current crop to the Nerazzurri.

Inter endured a below par 2014/15 Serie A campaign – they finished in midtable despite major January additions such as Xherdan Shaqiri and Lukas Podolski – and appear to be ready to chase new signings in a bid to challenge for Champions League qualification.

Reports suggest that both Cudarado and Salah are on their radar, with the pair facing uncertain Stamford Bridge futures.

The former was only signed over the winter from Fiorentina, but it’s already claimed that he’s eyeing a move back to Italy after failing to settle or make any impact on the pitch.

Salah is also wanted by Inter after impressing for Fiorentina, whom he joined on loan for the latter half of the season just gone as part of the Cuadrado deal.

A seaon-long deal with a view to buy for £12m next year is an option.

The Egypt international only signed for Chelsea in January 2014, but endured a tricky 12 months in England.
