Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City are all reportedly keen on signing Inter Milan defender Alessandro Bastoni during the summer transfer window.

Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United are all reportedly interested in signing Inter Milan defender Alessandro Bastoni.

The Italy international continues to be a key first-team player for last season's Champions League finalists, starting 19 matches in Serie A this term.

Overall, Bastoni has featured 191 times for Inter, scoring on four occasions and helping his side to the top-flight crown during the 2020-21 season.

The centre-back was also part of Roberto Mancini's Italy team which lifted the European Championships in 2021, beating England in the final at Wembley.

According to Turkish journalist Ekrem Konur, Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United are all admirers of Bastoni ahead of the summer window.

The report claims that Inter are in no rush to sell the 21-time international, with the player important to Simone Inzaghi's title-chasing side.

The Nerazzurri are currently sitting top of the Serie A standings after losing just one of their opening 24 league contests, possessing a nine-point advantage over second-placed Juventus.

Although Inter do not wish to sell Bastoni ahead of the 2024-25 campaign, it is understood that they could be tempted by an offer of €100m (£85.4m).

Erik ten Hag is plotting a move for a new defensive option in the summer transfer window with Raphael Varane set to depart at the end of the season.

The World Cup winner has a 12-month extension available in his contract at Old Trafford, however it is understood that the Red Devils will not trigger the clause.

Chelsea also have an experienced defender who looks set to leave this year, with 39-year-old Thiago Silva's future at Stamford Bridge uncertain.

Man City already have a number of first-team centre-back options but Pep Guardiola could be looking to bring the average age of his side down with the addition of Bastoni.

The treble-winning Citizens targeted youthful signings during last summer's window, recruiting 22-year-old Josko Gvardiol from RB Leipzig.
