Jiangsu Suning's Ramires subject of enquiries 'all the time' - agent

Ramires joined Jiangsu Suning from Chelsea in 2016.

The agent of Jiangsu Suning midfielder Ramires says that he is receiving enquiries for his client "all the time" amid rumours of interest from Inter Milan.

Ramires, who moved to Jiangsu from Chelsea in 2016, has been linked with Inter, who have the same owners as the Chinese Super League club -- Suning.

According to his agent Luiz Carlini, the Brazil international still has what it takes to be successful in a top league, although he would not be drawn on whether Inter are looking to bring him to Serie A in January, saying that is instead "a question for [Suning's technical director] Walter Sabatini."

"He's in a fantastic physical condition," Carlini told FCInterNews.it of Ramires. "Not only that, he's an experienced player who has played in two World Cups and who has proven himself in major competitions like the Champions League, which he has won, along with other trophies. 

"He is still able to compete at the highest level and enquiries are coming in for him all the time, which is only normal. It doesn't matter which league you play in, what matters is your ability. He always gives his best and that is why the door is still open.

"But he's got a great coach [Fabio Capello] at Jiangsu and they also have a great director. He's got a contract and he's happy in China. I think he's going to complete two years in the Chinese Super League."

On whether he had spoken to Sabatini about Ramires joining the Nerazzurri, he said: "Inter are a top, top club, but that's a question for Sabatini."

Ramires, 30, has scored 11 goals for Jiangsu this season. He moved to China from Chelsea in a move reported to be worth €28 million in January 2016 after six years at Stamford Bridge, in which he played 160 matches, scored 17 goals and won the Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup, Champions League and Europa League.
