Inter Milan are pushing to close a deal for Manchester City defender Aleksandar Kolarov.

Corriere dello Sport says Inter are ready to offer Andrea Ranocchia, a favourite of City manager Roberto Mancini, in exchange for Kolarov.

A fed-up Ranocchia is demanding a transfer as Inter put the final touches on a deal for Palermo stopper Matias Silvestre.

And the former Bari would welcome a move to City, though QPR are also keen where Mike Rigg has watched the Italy international extensively.
