Inter Milan line up Gerrard swoop

Inter Milan are preparing a bid for Steven Gerrard should Liverpool fail to qualify for the Champions League.

Reports today suggest that Inter boss Jose Mourinho is eager to capitalise on the Red's dreadful season by luring away their star asset.

Mourinho has been an admirer of the Anfield captain for some time, even trying to sign him when he was in charge of Chelsea. And now Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport has suggested the England man will top Inter's transfer targets in the summer.

Gerrard has become increasingly frustrated at Liverpool this season, and although he's shown commitment to his home town club in the past, failure to finish in the top four could be the final straw.
