€25m Bid Submitted: Chelsea beat Inter and Tottenham to the signing of new “Frank Lampard”

Inter Milan have joined Premier League clubs Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur in the race to sign Brescia midfielder Sandro Tonali.

The highly-rated 18-year-old midfielder is regarded as one of the top rising prospects in Italy, with the teenager already nailed a starting role for his Serie B side.

It’s believed Chelsea are the frontrunners for his signature having been monitoring his development since past season, but new report coming from Football Italia, claimed Inter have highlighted the youngster as a potential signing.

The report adds that scouts have been sent to watch Tonali in action at the Italy’s second tier, with the midfielder already registered nine appearances this season.

However, the Series B club are said to be unwilling to sell the midfielder at this stage of his career unless a mouth-watering offer in the region of €25m (£22.2m) is being offered.

Meanwhile, should Chelsea fail in their pursuit of the midfielder, Luka Jovic is another reported target for the Blues but there will be facing keen competition from Tottenham for his signature.

Italian outlet CalcioMercato claim Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea are keeping an eye on striker Luka Jovic, as the Serbian hitman continues to shine in the Bundesliga with Eintracht Frankfurt.

Just 20 years of age, Jovic joined Frankfurt in the summer on a season-long loan from Portuguese giants Benfica, where he has a contract until the summer of 2021. Frankfurt have an option to make the deal a permanent one.
