Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been in contact with Inter to make them aware of his pending availability according to a report from Quotidiano.net.

The 38-year-old Swede is currently on the books of MLS franchise LA Galaxy but intends to depart the California club once his deal expires at the end of December.

Ibrahimovic spent three years with Inter between 2006 and 2009 and is offering his services once more to his former employers who currently find themselves lacking options in attack due to Alexis Sanchez’s injury – which looks set to sideline him for a few months.

It is unclear if Ibrahimovic is actually under consideration by Inter, who, as per several other reports in the media, have identified a number of players they could move for in January.

Chelsea’s Olivier Giroud and Udinese’s Kevin Lasagna have both been mentioned in the media but Inter would of course need to pay a fee on top of their wages in order to acquire them unlike Ibrahimovic, where they would just need to give him a wage.

The report goes on to state that Inter are also considering Juventus’ Mario Mandzukic. The Croatian is a player Inter manager Antonio Conte particularly likes but they face competition from Manchester United for his signature.
