Chelsea target Joao Mario agrees Inter Milan deal via Jiangsu Suning

Joao Mario is set to join Inter Milan according to recent reports.

The Portuguese midfielder has been heavily linked with Chelsea this summer but it appears as though he is on his way to Italy.

Reports suggest Sporting Lisbon have accepted a £29million offer from the Nerazzurri, allowing Mario to join on a five-year deal.

The Sun is of the belief that Mario will be purchased by Chinese Super League club Jiangsu Suning, who are owned by Inter's majority shareholder Zhang Jindong, and immediately loaned to the Serie A outfit.

The transfer is being finalised in Portugal ahead of the Chinese league's transfer closure on Friday.
