Inter Milan have joined Arsenal in the race to sign highly-rated Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro this summer.
TalkSPORT reports how the 21-year-old is attracting admiring glances from a host of top European clubs following an impressive breakthrough campaign at the Santiago Bernabeu in 2013/14.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has been credited with an interest in bringing the Brazil international to the Emirates Stadium, as he looks to further strengthen his first-team squad in the forthcoming transfer window.
However, Arsenal will now face competition from Serie 'A' as Walter Mazzarri prepares an attempt to lure the player to the San Siro less than two years since arriving in Spain from Sao Paolo.
Real Madrid might yet decide to turn down all enquiries for Casemiro's signature, with Carlo Ancelotti still to make a decision about the South American youngster's long-term future.
Casemiro has made nine substitute appearances for Real Madrid this season and is tipped for a bright future in the game. But, the World Cup in his homeland this summer is likely to come too soon for the prodigious young talent, who is yet to feature in a competitive match for Luis Felipe Scolari's side.
