Inter Consider Lyon Winger Michel Bastos - Report

Inter's interest in Lyon winger Michel Bastos is not just mere curiosity as they throw together a €20 million move for him.

L'Equipe reports the Nerazzurri have sent tangible signals towards the Stade Gerland for the Brazil international who looked sharp at the World Cup.

He can play as a left-back or on the left wing and is seen as an alternative to Juan Manuel Vargas. Inter were linked with the €25m-rated Peruvian, but Fiorentina sporting director Pantaleo Corvino wrote off any chances of an exit on Tuesday when he said "Vargas stays".

That has left Inter to look at Bastos, and a €20m offer could see the French side unclench their fists.

Bastos arrived in France in 2006 and, having played for both Lille and Lyon, he has made 161 appearances in l'Hexagone, scoring 45 goals.
