Inter are reportedly planning a summer swoop for Schalke midfielder Jose Manuel Jurado.
According to Tuttosport, the Nerazzurri are putting into action a major overhaul at the end of the current campaign and technical director Marco Branca has identified the Spaniard as one of his principal transfer targets.
Inter should have little trouble in securing the services of Jurado, with Schalke said to be keen to offload the player in order to raise funds for a lucrative contract extension for star forward Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.
The paper claims that Branca is attracted by the player’s versatility and is willing to meet Schalke’s alleged asking price of €8 million.
Tuttosport, meanwhile, also claims that Emiliano Viviano is almost certain to return to San Siro from Palermo at the end of the season.
The Italy international goalkeeper only moved to Sicily in January, but Inter retain a 50 per cent stake in the highly-rated custodian.
