Cape Town - Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure may be the target of an audacious summer move by Serie A giants, Inter Milan.

Manchester City are preparing for a potential English Premiership title decider against Chelsea on Saturday, without Yaya Toure, and have now been rocked by the news that Inter Milan are readying a bid to bring their star player to Italy next season.

The Independent report that Yaya Toure's former mentor, Roberto Mancini, wants to sign the Ivory Coast star in July.

"Yaya is one of the strongest players in the world," the former Manchester City manager told Italian newspaper Il Giornale.

"He still is. He has played in so many teams. He has been in leagues in Belgium, Russia, Spain and England. Italy is the one missing. This could be the right opportunity for him to come and try.

"We are building a team. There are players that change the look of a team, and Yaya is one of them.

"Next year we could try. We need to bring three champions, and we will see that we will be ready to fight for the Scudetto."

Toure is currently on AFCON 2015 duty with Ivory Coast, where the pre-tournament favourites have progressed to the last 8.

Ivory Coast face Algeria in one of the games of the tournament on Sunday at 21:30.

PSG have also been credited with a serious interest in the midfielder.
