Inter Milan have put Chelsea’s Juan Mata on their shortlist along with Tottenham’s Erik Lamela.

Mata, out of favour at Stamford Bridge, is a target for a number of clubs having failed to establish himself in Jose Mourinho’s strongest side.

With Chelsea unwilling to allow him to move to a rival Premier League club, the 25-year-old Spaniard is set to push behind the scenes for a move abroad in order to play regularly ahead of the World Cup.

If Milan are beaten to his signature they will turn to Lamela who, as reported by Mirror Sport last week, wants to leave Tottenham on loan.
