It states that Inter have been in constant contact with Lille for the winger and have also scouted him multiple times over the last few weeks. Piero Ausilio is very keen on the player and the offer is a result of that. Lille’s president has already confirmed that the player will leave in the summer and that has put many clubs on alert, with Bayern Munich leading the race for him.”
