Joao Mario has interest from four clubs outside Italy as Inter seek to offload the midfielder, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.

Monaco and Sporting, the 26-year-old’s former side, are fond of the Portugal international while Sevilla and Galatasaray have made approaches.

No club seems to be a clear favourite ahead of the others, but Mario is almost certain to depart before the transfer window shuts on 2 September.

Antonio Conte excluded the player from Sunday’s unofficial friendly against Gozzano and is unlikely to count upon him against Lecce next week.

Mario arrived from Sporting in a deal worth more than €40 million in 2016, but he has never repaid the faith Inter showed in him.

West Ham took him on loan for six months in 2018 but were priced out of a permanent deal, leaving Mario with no option but to return to Milan.

The midfielder only scored once for Inter last season and failed to win back the trust of head coach Luciano Spalletti, having disappointed in the Italian’s first season.

Spalletti sent Mario home from training ahead of a match against Napoli in May, blaming him for a lack of commitment in a key phase of the season.
