Inter Milan chasing Guangzhou Evergrande defender Zhang Linpeng

Inter Milan are watching Guangzhou Evergrande defender Zhang Linpeng.

The 25 year-old China international recently employed Italian agent Davide Lippi and is keen to move to Europe this summer.

In China, Zhang has been likened to Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos, a label that he has embraced.

The defender's game improved hugely under former Guangzhou Evergrande coach Marcello Lippi and he is now enjoying the tutelage of new manager Fabio Cannavaro.

Inter owner Erick Thohir has made no secret he wants to lift the club's profile across Asia and the signing of Zhang is now being discussed.
