Manchester United and Arsenal have been put on high alert as Inter Milan plot a mass summer exodus.
Wantaway stars Mauro Icardi and Ivan Perisic are both expected to be put in the shop window with the club also considering sacking boss Luciano Spalletti at the end of the season.
Icardi has attracted interest from a number of clubs but United are favourites to land his signature with Inter keen to offload the striker amid an ongoing contract dispute.

Arsenal are also contemplating renewing their interest in Perisic, who was said to be distraught after missing out on a move to the Emirates back in January.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Inter are ready to end their acrimonious relationship with the pair by cashing in on them in the summer.
The Serie A club are holding out for around £90million for Icardi, but are also open to a cash-plus player deal with Romelu Lukaku going in the opposite direction.
Inter have held a long-term desire to bring the Belgium striker to Italy, although it is thought a swap deal is now a lot less attractive to United following Lukaku’s recent upturn in form.

La Gazzetta dello Sport also claim that Inter are planning to sack Spalletti after a disappointing campaign.
The 60-year-old’s job does not depend on the result of Sunday’s Milan derby but high-ranking officials at the club are beginning to lose patience with Spalletti.
Inter occupy the last Champions League spot but are just three points ahead of Rome and crashed out of Europe’s second-rate competition earlier this week.
Spalletti is expected to deliver Champions League football for next season although he could find himself getting the bullet regardless.
