Inter Milan have opened contract talks with Samir Handanovic in a bid to counter interest from Liverpool and Manchester City.

According to a report in The Metro the Italian giants want to add another 12 months onto the keepers current deal which runs until 2019 and also provide a significant pay rise.

Liverpool and Manchester City are both in the market for a new goalkeeper with the 32-year-old Slovenian internationalist high on their wanted lists.

Handanovic is in his fifth season with Inter and has over a decade of Serie A experience to his name.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has been concerned about his side’s goalkeeping position for a while and acknowledges that a top class keeper is required if his club are to make a serious attempt at winning the title.

One of Pep Guardiola’s first decisions at Manchester City was to drop Joe Hart but with Claudio Bravo failing to make an impact City will be looking for a new number one for next season.
