Javier Zanetti is hopeful Inter’s rebuilding mission under Roberto Mancini can begin with the signing of Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure.

The Ivorian has been strongly linked with a move away from City, with Inter and his former manager Mancini reported to be at the front of the queue.

Inter have struggled this season and could miss out on a place in Europe next season, but Zanetti has his eye on Toure and Paris Saint Germain midfielder Thiago Motta – who left San Siro in 2012 – to help lift the club back up the Serie A table.

“Yaya? We are at the stage where we hope that we can finalise a deal, he would help us make a step up in quality,” Zanetti said.

“If Thiago [Motta] was to arrive he would give us a lot and know the surroundings.

“He has experience and quality – he’s one of the strongest midfielders I’ve ever played with.

“He is very intelligent, he understands how to run a game and at times when you are in trouble he can take the ball and manage the situation.

“Bringing in players like these would mark a step up in quality.”
