Inter Milan reportedly keen on Ilkay Gundogan

Inter Milan have reportedly outlined their intentions to move for Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan this summer.

The Germany international has struggled for playing time at the Etihad Stadium since joining from Borussia Dortmund for £20m in 2016.

According to Tuttosport, the Italian giants are keeping tabs on the 27-year-old playmaker after cooling their interest in Real Madrid’s Luka Modric and losing target Arturo Vidal to FC Barcelona.

You won’t be surprised to know that when you look at the outright odds at, Germany sit right among the top bookies favourites for the World Cup. The fact that they are Germany and the archetypal ‘tournament team’ is probably enough for most punters to place a bet, but the form books show that the confidence in Die Mannschaft is well placed. The holders breezed through qualifying with ten wins out of ten (scoring 43 and conceding just four) and tasted success in the Confederations Cup on Russian soil last summer, at the same time as their under-21s swept to glory in the European Championships in Poland.
