Inter Milan are believed to be keeping tabs on promising Ivorian striker Seydou Doumbia.
Jose Mourinho is said to be keen on the 21-year-old, according to Italian sport newspaper Tuttosport.
The former Chelsea boss has decided to follow the youngster, who has been likened to fellow countryman Didier Drogba.
Mourinho signed Drogba from Marseille in 2004 and oversaw his rapid rise to becoming one of the world's best footballers.
Doumbia currently tops the goalscoring charts in the Swiss Super League having bagged 17 goals this season for Young Boys and has attracted interest from across the continent.
Premier League sides Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham are also said to be charting his progress, meaning Mourinho could have a fight on his hands to secure the player's services.
The Swiss club are reluctant to let their star striker leave however, and are commanding a fee of 10million euros (£9m) for the Ivory Coast international.
