Internazionale are understood to be pursuing a possible move for Chelsea’s young Danish centre-back Andreas Christensen.
Christensen hasn’t figured much for the Chelsea first-team but has impressed during his two-year loan spell away from the club with Borussia Mönchengladbach, and according to Sky Italia (via Football Italia), Inter are keen on the defender.

The Danish international joined Chelsea back in 2012 from Brondby to link up with the Blues’ youth side.
He spent three years playing for Chelsea but only played 12 minutes for the first-team. However, his loan spell in the Bundesliga has attracted the attention of a few clubs around Europe.
Now, Christensen has returned to Stamford Bridge, but it is still unsure as to whether he will remain with the club ahead of the new Premier League season.
Central defender and club captain John Terry officially left the club when he signed for Aston Villa, but Antonio Conte’s intentions for Christensen are still unclear.
It appears more likely the Chelsea boss will sign a more experienced star in the mould of Virgil van Dijk or Leonardo Bonucci rather than give the youngster a chance in the first team.
It appears Inter haven’t made a formal offer for the 21-year-old but with money to burn the Serie A heavyweights are certainly interested in acquiring the young Dane’s services this summer.
If Conte and Chelsea can cash in on Christensen, he may be moved on like many other young players before him at Stamford Bridge.
