Cameroon international eyes move to top European league this summer.
Inter are reportedly open to the idea of securing the return of Anzhi striker Samuel Eto’o after the club decided to dismantle their squad.
The Russian club’s owner Suleiman Kerimov is set to “reformat” the club after they failed to win any of their opening four games of the season, with top signings such as Eto’o, Lassana Diarra, Willian and Christopher Samba all set to be sold.
Eto’o remains their most high profile player and has fetched in the region of £350,000 per week since joining the Dagestan based outfit.
However, with the big names set to depart in order to allow the club to build their academy having failed to clinch immediate success, Eto’o has been paired with a number of top European clubs.
It has been reported in the English media that Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho would be interested in the possibility of signing his former striker after their successful spell together at Inter.
However, the Nerazzurri have also emerged as an option, but much will depend on the financial aspects of the deal as they would undoubtedly be unable to satisfy anything anywhere near what Eto’o currently earns.
With Inter set to seal the signing of Rolando from Porto, it is understood that Eto’o has the same agent as the Portuguese star, Claudio Vigorelli.
Director of sport Marco Branca will now open talks with the player’s representative in a bid to see whether a move is feasible according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.
At this stage it is unclear as to whether the possibility of Eto’o returning to Italy is realistic, but Inter are certainly open to the idea of making it happen.
