Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal all face competition from Italy in the race to sign French international midfielder Yann M'Vila.
The 21-year-old Rennes starlet was heavily linked with a move to the Barclays Premier League during the summer transfer window, and has remained on the radar of English clubs leading up to the opening of the January equivalent.
However, talkSPORT claims that Inter Milan have joined the race for the 17-cap international, and are braced to make an £11 million offer to bring the player to Serie 'A' before the end of the month.
The same report goes on to cite that Inter are sending a delegation from the San Siro to France on Monday, with the Italian giants hoping to reach an agreement with their Ligue 1 counterparts over the talented defensive midfielder.
Rennes were hoping to keep hold of their prized asset until the summer, with the radio station claiming Les Rouges et Noirs could look to cash-in on the player after Euro 2012, when his projected value could dramatically rise with impressive performances in Poland & Ukraine.
Inter's interest could change things however, and if the English trio don't want to miss out on the player, they may have to act sooner rather than later.
