Inter are prepared to listen to offers for midfielder Borja Valero as the club look to offload several fringe players in their squad, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.

Valero joined the Nerazzurri twelve months ago in a deal worth €5.5 million after falling out with Fiorentina sporting director Panteleo Corvino and made 36 appearances during his first season in Milan, scoring two goals.

However the Spaniard fell out of favour during the second half of the campaign and is no longer considered to be untouchable by the club, who could agree to sell him should they receive a satisfactory offer this summer.

The 33 year-old has been linked with a return to La Liga side Villarreal, whom he played for during the 2011-12 season, and despite his agent’s denial the Milan-based publication assure that the club would consider any offer they received.

Valero is no longer at the centre of Luciano Spalletti’s plans and could be sacrificed in order to make room for new arrivals in midfield.
