Chelsea have made a £6.7million offer for Inter Milan teenager, Cesare Casadei, according to Sky in Italy.

The 19-year-old midfielder is yet to make a senior appearance for the Serie A giants, with the report from Italy claiming that the bid which contains no buy-back option is unlikely to be accepted by Inter.

Chelsea are said to have enquired about the availability of Casadei during their negotiations for Romelu Lukaku to head back to Italy, but were unable to perduade Inter into allowing the highly-rated youngster to make the move to London.

Casadei has impressed for Inter’s Nerazzurri Primavera while also representing Italy at Under-19 level.

Inter are known to hold Casadei in high regard and are unlikely to sanction a sale for such a low amount without any sort of incentive of a buy-back clause.

The midfielder was said at one stage to have been part of the negotiations to head to Torino as part of the Gleison Bremer deal, only for Inter to pull him out of the talks due to the lack of the option to repurchase him at a later date.
