Despite Eliaquim Mangala last playing a Premier League match in February 2018, there could be a club who’s interested in signing him.

That would be Inter Milan, according to Tuttosport this Thursday. The Italian side are looking to add a defender to the squad, and could go after the Frenchman, who’s been a target for them since his time at FC Porto.

Tuttosport writes that Inter’s idea would be to sign Mangala at the end of the season, when his contract with Manchester City expires.

However, with the possibility of Miranda’s departure in the January transfer window, the Nerazzurri could try to take the Frenchman as early as this month.

Tuttosport doesn’t say how much Inter would pay for the defender, although his situation makes it clear that Man City are not in a position to demand a lot.

Signed from Porto on a €30m deal in 2014, Mangala has made 79 appearances for the Premier League side, the last of them in January 2018. He later moved to Everton on a short loan spell, and never played for City again.
