Inter Milan have offered 14 million euros to sign Brazilian teenager Thiago Maia, according to a media report.

But the Italian Serie A giants are understood to be facing competition for the 19-year-old’s signature from local rivals AC Milan and France’ s Lille.

Maia’s club, Santos, have indicated they will negotiate a deal for the midfielder before the close of the European summer transfer window, the Uol news portal said.

It would be the second transfer of a Santos player to Inter Milan in as many years. Last year striker Gabriel Barbosa joined the Nerazzurri in a deal worth 30 million euros.

Maia has made 115 appearances for Santos since being promoted from the club’s youth academy in 2014.

He has represented Brazil’s under-17, under-20 and under-23 national teams and was part of the outfit that won the gold medal for Brazil at last year’s Rio Olympics.
