The Nerazzurri are desperate to add some fresh blood to their squad this summer after a disappointing season, and see the Dutchman as a valuable addition
The Nerazzurri are desperate to strengthen their squad ahead of the 2012-13 campaign following a disastrous season, and sporting director Marco Branca sees the 25-year-old Afellay as the perfect addition.
The former PSV star has a contract until 2015 with Barcelona, but Inter are hopeful that the Catalans are open to talks as the breakthrough of Cristian Tello and Isaac Cuenca this season has given them more options in attack.
Afellay joined Barcelona from PSV in January 2011 and won La Liga and the Champions League in his first season at Camp Nou.However, the versatile attacking midfielder has spent the past six months on the sidelines due to a knee injury.
He recently resumed regular training action and could make his comeback in the next few weeks.
