Inter Milan boss Jose Mourinho is eyeing a January bid for Chelsea winger Florent Malouda.

The Daily Mail says Mourinho is concerned that fellow countryman Ricardo Quaresma is jeered by the Inter fans.

While Mourinho wants the Portugal international to be a success Quaresma's confidence is being hit by the reaction of the supporters at recent matches.

In contrast Malouda is in the best form of his career at Chelsea. Mourinho was instrumental in making Malouda choose Chelsea ahead of Liverpool when the 28-year-old left Lyon.

Any approach from Mourinho would make Malouda think seriously about a move and the 'Special One' is considering a £10million offer for the player when the transfer window opens on Jan 1.
