Javier Mascherano's agent claims they are in talks with Inter Milan over a possible move, which would see the Liverpool midfielder reunited with former boss Rafael Benitez. The Argentina captain has spent the past three years at Anfield but contract negotiations have currently been put on hold and one of his agents, Marco Piccioli, claims the 25-year-old could very well follow in his former manager's footsteps.

"There has already been a first contact with director Marco Branca," Piccioli told www.Itasportpress.it.

"We are evaluating the move hard and in the next few days we will have a new meeting to better establish the details of this transfer deal."

Mascherano, who has two years left on his current deal at Liverpool, revealed earlier this week he was learning Italian.
