Out-of-favour Leicester City midfielder Adrien Silva has been offered to Italian Serie A side Inter Milan, according to a report on the Leicester Mercury.

The Portuguese international has found it difficult to break into the first team so far this season and is likely to leave the club this month.

Reports in Italy claim that Inter Milan are in pole position to sign the midfielder, who has only made two Premier League appearances this season.

Inter are looking to sign a central midfielder before the transfer window closes and Silva is understood to be high on their list of targets.

However, Foxes’ manager Claude Puel has had to rethink whether he wants to let Silva leave after he already sold Vicente Iborra to Villarreal.

The 29-year-old signed for Leicester in August 2017 but the paperwork went through a few seconds after the deadline, meaning he was forced to wait until January 2018 to make his debut for the club.
