Inter Milan want Jesse Lingard on loan from Manchester United – but only if they can off-load flop buy Christian Eriksen.

It's believed Inter boss Antonio Conte is an admirer of Lingard who's career has hit the buffers at Old Trafford.

The 28-year-old former England star will be allowed to leave United after playing only two Carabao Cup games this season.

Conte is keen to give his title chasing stars a January boost as they battle with rivals AC Milan at the top of Serie A.

And the ex-Chelsea boss has identified Lingard as a player who could do a job after being given good reports by current Inter stars Romelu Lukaku and Ashley Young who both joined the Italian's from United.
