Former Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini believes Yaya Toure wants to leave the club and says he would be keen to take him to Inter Milan.
The 31-year-old Ivorian midfielder has been at City for five years and won the Premier League under Mancini in 2012.
Mancini, who has been Inter coach since November, said: "He's played in almost every league except Germany and Italy.
"If, as seems to be the case, he wants to try Serie A we'll look into the possibility but it won't be easy."
Toure, who last month helped the Ivory Coast win the Africa Cup of Nations, began his career with Belgian club Beveren and also had spells in Ukraine, Greece and France before joining Barcelona in 2007.
He won the Champions League, World Club Cup, Uefa Super Cup, two La Liga titles and one Copa del Rey during his three years at the Nou Camp.
