Inter Milan register an interest in signing Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel, according to the player's agent.

The agent of Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel has revealed that Inter Milan want to sign the player in the summer.

John Shittu insisted earlier this week that reported interest in Mikel was "just a rumour", but the Nigerian's representative has now admitted that the Serie A club are keen to add the midfielder to their squad.

"Inter? What I can tell you is that I met with my client and the directors, and they are interested in him," Shittu told FcInterNews.it.

"He is a great player who has won the Champions League and the Africa Cup of Nations, so he is suited to the Nerazzurri's standards.

"Inter is a possibility, but right now, Mikel is a Chelsea player."

Mikel has made 35 appearances for the Stamford Bridge outfit this season.
