Serie A resurgent giants Inter Milan want to continue with squad transformation and are looking to loan the former Liverpool target and Jiangsu Suning star Alex Teixeira.
The Beneamata want to provide head coach Luciano Spalletti with a fresh attacking midfield offer after refusing a deal for Arsenal German genius Mesut Ozil and will look for their sister club for a solution.
Inter Milan new owners also own the Chinese outfit and a deal for Alex Teixeira is not expected to be a problematic one.
A loan move is on the cards as Inter Milan want to cut costs and respect the Financial Fair Play regulations.
This way they want to leave room in the budget to solve the centre-back issue.
Andrea Ranocchia is currently the only back-up option to Miranda and Milan Skriniar and Spalletti is keen to bolster his defensive line.
