Inter Milan president Erick Thohir will fly into England this week to hold formal talks with three Premier League clubs regarding potential summer transfers, according to talkSPORT.
The Italian giants have already snapped up Nemanja Vidic from Manchester United after the Serbian let his contract expire at the club, and Thohir is desperate to add more strength to the squad and is keen to raid England's top-flight.
Inter were left disappointed with their 2013/2014 campaign, finishing mid-table and failing to cement a European spot, and that has sparked reports of drastic changes to take place at the San Siro. Thohir took over from the Italian giants in October and has been very open about the lack of talent currently at the club, and he has admitted that he is prepared to spend big in order to bring back the glory days they once had, especially the era under now-Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho.
With the Portuguese in charge, Inter won the league title, the Coppa Italia and also the Champions League, and Thohir is desperate to see those times back at the club.
And he isn't the only one backing the quest for improvement, as manager Walter Mazzarri, technical director Piero Ausilio and general director Marco Fassone are all weighing in on potential deals for this summer. Mazzarri, Ausilio and Fassone have already put a few names on a potential wishlist, with the more significant ones being that of Premier League trio Lucas Leiva, Javi Garcia and Fernando Torres, all whom are linked with departures from their current clubs.
With the names on the shortlist, it is now down to Thohir to fly to England and hold talks with the players, the clubs and also their representatives. It would seem that Liverpool, City and Chelsea are all willing to sell the players and Inter are keen to secure the deals as soon as possible so they have time to gel with the squad and settle to life in Italy.
