Inter are in the market for a new full-back to replace Ashley Young who is leaving on a free transfer.

Despite being managerless after Antonio Conte departed, club chiefs want to bolster the squad for the incoming boss – believed to be Simone Inzaghi.

And there has already been contact with the player's entourage as they look to push to the front of the queue.

Chelsea boss Tuchel wants to flog the club's fringe players as he plots transfers of his own.

Striker Tammy Abraham is up for sale in the region of £40million with the hope of reinvesting in Romelu Lukaku.

Sales of keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Ross Barkley and Ruben Loftus-Cheek will also raise healthy transfer funds.

And centre-back Kurt Zouma is also available having slipped down the pecking order behind Andreas Christensen.
