Inter Milan will challenge Chelsea for £17M Napoli star Hamsik

Inter Milan boss Jose Mourinho will tackle former club Chelsea for Napoli star Marek Hamsik.

Inter Milan boss Jose Mourinho will tackle former club Chelsea for Napoli star Marek Hamsik.

Napoli are braced for a summer raid for their £17million-rated star, who has eight Serie A goals so far this season, says the Daily Mail.

Chelsea, cleared to spend this summer after seeing their transfer ban quashed, see Hamsik as a candidate to add youthful sparkle to their midfield.

Stamford Bridge scouts watched the 22-year-old long before Carlo Ancelotti arrived as boss in the summer, but the Italian has also confirmed his admiration.

However, Mourinho has asked Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti to fund a move for the former Brescia man.
