The Mail Online understands that Inter Milan manager Roberto Mancini is eyeing a triple raid on former club Manchester City, with Yaya Toure, James Milner and Samir Nasri all on his radar.
The Italian signed all three midfielders during his time at the Etihad Stadium, and is keen to draft them in as he aims to strengthen his squad following a disappointing season in Serie A.
Of all three, only Toure has started more than two thirds of City’s league games this season though his wages of over £200,000 could prove to be a stumbling block in any potential deal.
Paris Saint Germain have also been linked with a move for Nasri while Milner, who will be a free agent in the summer, is also a target for Arsenal and Liverpool.
Inter currently sit in ninth position in Serie A with just eight games remaining, and face rivals AC Milan, who sit a place above them, next time out.
