Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech is reportedly close to agreeing terms with Serie A side Inter Milan as he looks to make a move away from Stamford Bridge this summer.
The 32-year-old goalkeeper, who was the Blues first choice for almost a decade, has fallen down the pecking order this season, with manager Jose Mourinho favouring the young Thibaut Courtois.
Due to this reason, the Czech international, who has only started in domestic cup competitions this season, has not been happy and had earlier hinted of moving to a new club after the end of this season.
"I'm used to playing 50 or 60 games a season, not 15 or 20. That's a big difference," Cech had said earlier, according to the Daily Mirror. "It is no secret that I want to play more. The situation is the same, it hasn't changed. But at the end of the season it will be solved."
English Premier League sides Arsenal and Liverpool have both reportedly expressed an interest in signing the former Rennes man, but Mourinho is unlikely to sell his players to an EPL rival.
And now Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport claims that Inter Milan are the favourites to sign Cech, with the 32-year-old believed to be on the verge of agreeing terms with the Serie A side.
Chelsea are believed to be looking for a transfer fee somewhere in the region of £10 million for Cech, and Inter Milan are reportedly willing to meet the Blues asking price as they feel that the 32-year-old is still a quality goalkeeper.
Although Inter Milan currently have a pretty good goalkeeper in Samir Handanović, they are reportedly looking to land a new custodian after getting tired of the Slovenian's reluctance to sign a new deal.
Handanović, who current contract with Inter Milan is due to expire next season, is reportedly demanding a deal worth £2.2 million per season after rejecting the Serie A side's initial offer of £1.6 million.
