Inter Milan are chasing Manchester City pair Aleksandar Kolarov and Edin Dzeko.

The People says Inter sporting director Piero Ausilio checked out striker Dzeko and left-back Kolarov in City's 4-2 Champions League win over Viktoria Plzen on Wednesday.

Bosnia international Dzeko scored their final goal. But the 27-year-old has started just four Premier League games this season, and is unhappy at being behind Sergio Aguero and Alvaro Negredo in the pecking order.

Serbia star Kolarov, 28, has a similarly uncertain role in Manuel Pellegrini's squad.

Under contract until 2015, he would relish a return to Italy - having spent three seasons with Lazio before joining City in 2010.
