Inter Milan have reportedly lined up a shock bid for Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard, as reported by the Daily Express.
This has been prompted by the sudden appointment of Roberto Mancini to the manager’s role at the Italian giants, who has returned to the position that he held prior to his time at Manchester City.
Gerrard’s future with the Reds is once again unsure, with significant speculation over his likely destination at the end of the season.
Talks over a new deal between Liverpool and Gerrard have been slow, and with his contract expiring at the end of the season, January could shape his Premier League future.
While the MLS has been regularly mooted as a likely destination for the former England captain, Inter have emerged as an alternative.
Mancini’s appointment has led to Inter being ready to put an offer for Gerrard on the table in January, something which might appeal to the veteran midfielder.
