Inter Milan are among several European sides said to be monitoring Manchester City forward Gabriel Jesus.
The 24-year-old has just 16 months left on his current deal at the Etihad and Pep Guardiola’s side could look to cash in on the Brazilian this summer, unless they can agree to an extension.
Inter will be primed to make a move and are likely to lead the race for his signature if Jesus becomes available, reports The Sun.

City boss Guardiola has switched Jesus out wide this season where he has impressed so far.
Jesus has not played since the winter break due to a muscle issue but has six goals and nine assists to his name in 25 appearances so far this term.
