Inter Monitor Yaya Toure's Situation At Barcelona - Report

The Nerazzurri may add more muscle to the midfield...
After statements by Barcelona midfielder Yaya Toure to France Football, claiming he is considering a move away from the Nou Camp, Serie A champions Inter have taken note. The player is upset with his lack of playing time this season under coach Josep Guardiola.

The Nerazzurri are pondering a move for the Ivory Coast international, possibly as soon as January, according to Il Corriere dello Sport.

According to the report, Inter have been keeping track of the defensive midfielder since his Monaco days and also tried to include him in the deal when they sold Zlatan Ibrahimovic to the Blaugrana. And now, they have the opportunity to pounce again.

"I understand that in a great team there is turnover, but how can it be it's always the same player who sits out?" asked Yaya's agent, Dimitri Seluk.

"[Seydou] Keita has already played ten matches and Yaya only five. A few months ago we signed a contract renewal. I don't question the legitimate choices of the coach, but then why did they prolong the stay of Yaya?"

Toure cost the treble winners €9 million in the summer of 2007.
