Roberto Mancini has said he 'would take' Andrei Shevchenko to Internazionale.
Internazionale boss Roberto Mancini has admitted he would be interested in Andrei Shevchenko if he was available.
The Ukrainian striker has found himself out of the Chelsea team in recent weeks after failing to shine in the early part of the season.
He has been linked with a return to Italy, with former club Milan rumoured to be the most likely destination.
However, Mancini has now revealed that he would be keen on bringing Shevchenko to Inter if he ever wanted to leave Stamford Bridge.
"Shevchenko? I would take him," said Mancini.
Mancini also expressed an interest in Antonio Cassano, who has struggled to settle since joining Real Madrid last January.
Mancini views Cassano as an extremely talented striker and would love to see him back in Serie A.
"I personally would take Cassano. He has extraordinary quality technically, although I understand it would be difficult halfway through a season.
"But to take such a strong player would still be an advantage.
"His return would be good for Italian football."
