The agent of former Chelsea midfielder Ramires has suggested that his client could join Inter Milan at the start of 2018.
Ramires, 30, currently represents Chinese Super League side Jiangsu Suning, who he joined from Chelsea in January 2016.
Inter have been strongly linked with a move for the Brazilian international in recent months, with the Italian outfit under the same Chinese ownership as Jiangsu Suning.
Luiz Carlini, who represents Ramires, has claimed that "the door remains open" for the midfielder to switch to San Siro in the January transfer window.
"There's always talk about Ramires and it's normal," Carlini told FCInterNews. "No matter what league he plays in, his skills can always be seen. He always gives his best and for this reason, the door remains open.
"Still, Jiangsu Suning are coached by a great coach and there's also a great sporting director in place. He has a contract and he's happy in China. Have I talked to Walter Sabatini about Ramires to Inter? Inter are a top, top team the moment, but only Sabatini can answer this question."
Ramires scored 47 times in 236 appearances for Chelsea between 2010 and 2016.
