Inter Milan will reportedly move for Atletico Madrid defender Jose Gimenez in January, despite reported interest from Manchester United and Arsenal.
The San Siro giants were looking for another centre-back in the summer transfer window, but failed with moves for Arsenal’s Shkodran Mustafi and Manchester City’s Eliaquim Mangala.
Now Tuttosport is reporting that Inter will try and add a reinforcement to their defensive line in January, with Gimenez top of their list.
Manchester United, Arsenal, Roma and Juventus were all interested in the Uruguayan this summer, but Atleti’s transfer ban meant they wouldn’t sell, and his release clause is £60m.
However, his contract is expiring at the end of the season and so for Gimenez hasn’t signed an extension, meaning the door could be open for clubs to return in January in an attempt to lure him away from Spain.
