Indeed, according to Calciomercato, Inter Milan are tracking Christensen ahead of the January transfer window. Inter Milan are weighing up a January approach for Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen .

Andreas Christensen has become the success story that Chelsea were longing for from their much-maligned loan system and the centre-back has earned the trust of Antonio Conte.

After two successful years at Borussia Monchengladbach, Christensen returned to Stamford Bridge in the summer and has established himself as one of the first-choice centre-backs this season.

The 21-year-old Denmark international has started seven of the last 10 Premier League games, including each of the last five and seems to have moved ahead of David Luiz and Gary Cahill in the pecking order, and clubs are taking notice.

Philippe Coutinho picks his dream five-a-side team

  Philippe Coutinho picks his dream five-a-side team Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho was asked by Soccer AM to make up his dream five-a-side team from the players he’s played alongside throughout his career. Here’s who he came up with and his reasoning for picking each player. JULIO CESAR “When I arrived at Inter Milan, in this moment, for me, he was the best goalkeeper in the world. He did great things at Inter. He is one of the best goalkeepers I’ve played with. When I arrived at Inter, I was so young and he helped me off the pitch. It was difficult being a long way from my family and friends. He is very quick with his movement and is also good with his feet.” LUCIO “When I arrived at Inter he was in his best moment. He won everything at Inter. He was very tough and trained as hard as he played. He’s a really nice guy but when he arrived in the dressing room for the game, he changed, you could not talk to him because he was focused on the game.” STEVEN GERRARD “This is an easy pick. He is one of the best players I’ve played with and I learned a lot from him. When I arrived at Liverpool, it was a dream to play with him, a guy who I used to watch in Brazil and I used to play with on the PlayStation. Stevie G is the best midfielder I’ve played with. He was an idol for me and for everyone who watched him play, but when you were together with him, and you see him training, it was different, he was even better. He was great at shooting, passing and defending and a big leader.

Inter Milan failed with a summer move for Christensen and it’s reported that they are still tracking the young defender with a view to a move when the January transfer window opens.
