Inter ‘in pole position’ to land Mandi on a free transfer

According to multiple reports, Inter have made an offer to sign Betis’ defender Aissa Mandi as a free agent in the summer.

The 29-year-old is one of the Nerazzurri’s transfer targets for 2021-22 and according to Estadio Deportivo and Le Buteur, they have offered the Algeria international a €2m-a-year deal.

Mandi will see his contract expire at the end of the season, and next week, he will reportedly announce his decision to leave his current club at the end of the campaign.

According to the reports, Mandi wants to begin a new chapter of his career and Inter are in pole position to secure his services.

The versatile defender won the Africa Cup of Nations in 2019 along with Milan midfielder Ismael Bennacer and next season they could face each other in the derby of Milan.

Mandi joined Betis from Stade Reims in 2016 and played 169 games with the La Liga side since.
