Chelsea and Manchester City are being linked with Inter Milan striker Adriano.

Inter are keen to offload Adriano, who has just been fined £150,000 for returning back to Italy late from a Christmas break.

Jose Mourinho has lost patience with his Brazilian and Inter hope City will renew interest in a striker that the English side coveted in the last January transfer window.

Adriano's girlfriend last month claimed Chelsea were in talks to sign the 26-year-old, while Brazilian side Flamengo would also be interested in taking him on loan.

Inter are keen to discuss a swap deal with City involving Jo.
