Internazionale is interested in Tahith Chong and Sofyan Amrabat. The 'Nerazzurri' want to get both former Feyenoorders to Milan this summer.

Amrabat still has a contract until mid-2022 with Club Brugge, which rents it out to Verona this season. With his strong game, the midfielder has drawn the necessary attention, because in addition to Inter, also Napoli, AC Milan and Fiorentina go to his services. (Source: VI )
