Inter Milan have opened talks with Rubin Kazan for midfielder Yann M'Vila.

Inter are in the market for a new defensive midfielder and have stepped up talks with Rubin Kazan for M'Vila.

The Nerazzurri are also interested in Napoli midfielder Valon Behrami, but delays have forced them to turn to M'Vila.

If there continues to be little encouragement from Napoli, Inter will focus all energies on securing a deal with Rubin Kazan for France international M'Vila.
