Inter Milan are waiting for Chelsea to make their interest clear in the race for Mario Balotelli.

Gazzetta dello Sport says Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti sees Balotelli as a better potential strike-partner for Didier Drogba than Liverpool ace Fernando Torres.

Inter have received a substantial offer from Manchester City, but they are waiting for Chelsea to make their move and respond.

Balotelli isn't expected to leave with the rest of the Inter squad for their friendly tour at the weekend, adding further fuel to the speculation that he will seal his transfer to the Premier League by the end of this week.
