Inter will soon receive a €20 million offer from Sevilla to take Joao Mario on loan with an option to buy, according to

Roma’s former sporting director Monchi would offer €2-4 million up front with the chance to make the move permanent for €16-18 million.

Sevilla made fresh contact with Mario’s entourage last night and are eager to beat off competition from Bayer Leverkusen, RB Leipzig and Galatasaray, none of whom have made significant progress.

Mario made 20 league appearances for Inter last season and has no future at the club under new head coach Antonio Conte.

Monaco were heavily interested in signing the 26-year-old between April and July, but they have cooled their interest since offering a loan swap involving Pietro Pellegri.

Villarreal have offered a season-long loan but they have smaller financial resources than Sevilla, who would be capable of paying Mario’s €3 million net annual salary in full.

Inter would save €6 million before tax on the midfielder’s wages if he completed a move to the La Liga side this month.

The Nerazzurri would then look to reoccupy that space on their wage bill by pursuing Conte’s final summer transfer targets, which are thought to be Edin Dzeko and Arturo Vidal.
