Inter Milan have joined Manchester City in their interest for Shakhtar Donetsk pair Willian and Fernandinho.

Inter chief Pietro Ausilio was at Stamford Bridge last week to run the rule over the Brazilian duo - and was joined at Chelsea's Champions League clash by a City scout.

Corriere dello Sport says for the moment Inter are simply monitoring the midfielders and assessing whether to make a concrete bid in January.

In the Nerazzurri's favour is president Massimo Moratti's good relationship with Shakhtar coach Mircea Lucescu.
