Inter to move for France coach Blanc after Euro 2012 - report

The Serie A outfit have sacked both Gian Piero Gasperini and Claudio Ranieri this season, and are allegedly interested in making the 46-year-old their next trainer
Inter have identified France coach Laurent Blanc as a possible replacement for interim boss Andrea Stramaccioni, L'Equipe reports.

The Giuseppe Meazza outfit parted ways with Gian Piero Gasperini and Claudio Ranieri this term and are already planning ahead for next season.

Former Chelsea boss Andre Villas Boas was initially touted as a potential long-term replacement, but as reported by Massimo Moratti has doubts over the Portuguese coach's ability to lead the team after taking advice from Jose Mourinho.

With Blanc reluctant to sign a new deal with Les Bleus, the Serie A club are ready to make a move for the former Bordeaux trainer after the European tournament in Poland and Ukraine.

It is also believed that Inter chiefs view the appointment of Blanc as a way to sign summer transfer targets Yann M'Vila and Eden Hazard.

Inter find themselves in seventh place in the Serie A standings, six points adrift of a Champions League spot.
