Inter Milan had scouts at Pittodrie last night to see Lokomotiv Moscow defender Branislav Ivanovic score in their 1-1 draw with Aberdeen.

The Serbia international has emerged as a January target for Inter, which will face stiff competition from Chelsea and Juventus for the centre-half.

However, Controcampo says Inter have the inside-running thanks to assistant coach Sinisa Mihajlovic, who is close to his fellow countryman.
