Internazionale have made an enquiry for Bastia's defensive starlet Alexandre Song.Internazionale have made an enquiry for Bastia's defensive starlet Alexandre Song.
The teenage stopper is rated highly within Ligue 1 and is tipped to leave Bastia during the summer.
With Bastia entrenched in the relegation zone with only one game remaining, Song's future at the Corsican club is uncertain.
If Bastia slip out of the top flight next weekend, it is widely expected that Song will be moved on at the end of the season.
Song, who rejected the chance to join Middlesbrough's academy earlier in his career, has already been targeted by Chelsea and Manchester United.
French champions Lyon have also asked for information on the 18-year-old, who is already a full Cameroon international.
But Italian giants Inter have now muscled in on the race for his services after lodging their interest with Bastia officials.
Reports suggest that, if Inter can persuade Bastia to sell Song, they will loan the centre half back to his current club to continue his education for another season.
Song is under contract to Bastia until 2008 but it would be a major surprise if he sees out the deal he signed earlier in the campaign.
