- Ramires could be on the verge of a move to Italian giants Inter Milan
- The Brazilian's current club Jiangsu Suning, is owned by Suning Group, whose owners are also biggest shareholders at the Nerazzurri
- The one time Champions League winner has had lots of European football experience with Benfica and Chelsea
Despite denials from Chinese club Jiangsu Suning, it has been reported that former Chelsea star Ramires, is very close to joining Inter Milan in January.
Both Inter Milan and Jiangsu Suning are owned by Suning Group and it has been reported that the midfielder would be moved to Serie A in the January transfer window.
Gazzetta dello Sport reports that Jiangsu Suning have agreed to let the Brazilian move to the Serie A side on loan.
The Chinese Super League season ends in November and the former Chelsea man, 30, could head straight to the Italians' training group to familiarize himself with his future team-mates.
However, Ramires would take up their one remaining non-EU slot, so the club are also considering Bologna’s Godfred Donsah, Yves Bissouma of Lille and Atletico Madrid man Thomas Partey.
Inter have been impressed by the performances of Paulinho at Barcelona following his return from China, and are not concerned by the fact Ramires has been away from Europe for nearly two years.
