Inter beat Juve to N’Zonzi?

Inter look set to beat rivals Juventus to the signing of Sevilla midfielder Steven N’Zonzi after activating his €40m release clause, say reports.

According to the Corriere dello Sport and Mediaset Premium, the Nerazzurri are ready to meet the Andalucian club’s valuation of the midfielder and activate his clause.

The two clubs have been in negotiations all summer following Ever Banega’s return to Sevilla for €9m and ongoing negotiations over forward Stevan Jovetic.

Italian champions Juve have long been touted with a move for the former Blackburn and Stoke midfielder, but were not willing to meet his release clause at Los Rojiblancos.
