Inter Milan have joined a growing list of Premier League giants who are chasing St. Etienne's highly rated 18-year-old Kurt Zouma, according to talkSPORT.
The French starlet has been targeted by the likes of Manchester United, City, Chelsea and Arsenal and is widely regarded as being a bright prospect for the future.
With the youngster having already played 47 times in France's elite division, he is seen as having the experience and ability necessary to cut it at the highest level, and Inter Milan have now signalled their intent to lure him away from St. Etienne.
The Italian giants are set to be taken over by Indonesian billionaire Erick Thohir and may subsequently have the funds available to launch a January spending-spree.
Inter currently sit fourth in the Serie A, seven points adrift of Roma who top the table. It's widely believed that they will use Thohir's cash injection to revamp their squad, and Zouma could well be a part of their plans for the future.
