Marotta further revealed Inter are keeping tabs on Man United left-back Alex Telles who only moved to Old Trafford last summer. He added:

“Telles? I can’t exclude this possibility but we’re making plans and we’ll see."

Telles has found game time hard to come by at United, with the ex-Inter star now playing second fiddle to Luke Shaw.

Arsenal, meanwhile, are expected to demand a fee in the region of £15million for Bellerin, who is currently their longest-serving player.

He has been unsettled at Arsenal since the start of last season where he was heavily linked with a move to PSG.

PSG’s interest in Bellerin was effectively ended after the French giants signed Achraf Hakimi from Inter.

Under Mikel Arteta last season, Bellerin did not play as many matches as he would have hoped for, with his contract running out in 2023.
