According to Italian publication Corriere della Serra, Inter Milan could look to swoop in for Diego Simeone at the end of the season amid uncertainty surrounding his future at Atletico Madrid.

Simeone has been at Atletico Madrid for almost 12 years and has taken the club to great heights, winning several titles and trophies along the way.

However, things have not been going all too well for El Cholo and the Rojiblancos this season, as they crashed out of the UEFA Champions League at the group stages while also failing to qualify for the Europa League.

There is a feeling that the partnership might have reached the end of the cycle, with reports in suggesting that Simeone has decided to leave Atletico at the end of the season and has already informed CEO Miguel Angel Gil Marin of his decision.

Should that happen, Inter Milan could be lying in wait to make a move and appoint Simeone as their manager in the summer.

The Nerazzurri currently have Simone Inzaghi as their head coach but things have not been going all too well under the Italian this term as they are ten points behind Serie A leaders Napoli. So, there could be a possibility of making a change at the end of the season.

And Simeone, who represented Inter Milan as a player in the past, and has previously admitted that he dreams of returning to the club as a manager.

That dream could become a reality in the summer, if he does indeed decide to move on from Atletico Madrid.

Tottenham Hotspur hold an interest in key Atletico Madrid duo

According to MARCA, Tottenham Hotspur have shown an interest in signing key Atletico Madrid stars Yannick Carrasco and Jan Oblak and could look to make a move for the duo in the summer.

Tottenham and Atletico have fostered a good working relationship in recent times, with the Rojiblancos signing Sergio Reguilon on loan from the Premier League club in the summer.

Following that, the Colchoneros secured the signing of Matt Doherty in January on a free transfer after Tottenham handed him a letter of freedom so that he can join the La Liga club.

Now, it is being claimed that Tottenham could look to capitalise on it and act on their interest in both Carrasco and Oblak.

Carrasco has been a topic of interest at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for some time now. The Lilywhites have even made attempts to sign him in the past but were unable to pull off the transfer.

However, with the 29-year-old reportedly disgruntled at Atletico, a summer exit could be on the cards. Barcelona have secured an option to sign the winger for a fee of €20 million in the summer, but Tottenham could offer more if they are serious about signing him.

Meanwhile, Oblak has also been on the radars of Tottenham for some time. With captain and first-choice goalkeeper Hugo Lloris nearing the end of his career, the north London club have identified the Slovenian ace as a possible replacement for the Frenchman.

Oblak has been a permanent fixture in the lineup at Atletico Madrid for close to a decade now. But he harbours hopes of playing in the Premier League while he also wishes to challenge for trophies – something that has not happened at Atletico this term or the last season.

It could compel him to consider a move away from the Civitas Metropolitano, and Tottenham would be lying in wait if such a scenario materialises.
