Universidad de Chile's centre back Igor Lichnovsky is chased by Inter Milan and Chelsea, reports have been confirmed by the youngster's agent. The 18-year old centre-back was recently voted as the Man of the Match in the Clasico Universitario derby against Universidad Catolica.

The Chile U-17 international attracted the interest of Chelsea in January when the Blues' scouts were impressed by his performance for Universidad's reserve squad. His agent Rodrigo Robles told that Chelsea had shown interest in the teenager earlier, and now, Italian club Inter Milan has asked about the player.

News reports from Italy suggests that Inter has already agreed on a deal worth £2million with Lichnovsky's club, however, Robles told that an agreement has not been reached. "I am in contact with Inter and they have asked me what price he would be available for."
