Torino, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly monitoring Andrea Ranocchia’s situation at Inter.
According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, the trio are ready to make a bid for the player if there is the possibility of a summer exit.
Ranocchia moved to San Siro in January 2011 from Genoa in a deal that was worth around €18m in total.
The Italian international impressed during his first six months with the Beneamata, but he has struggled badly this term.
Fitness and form issues have limited him to just nine top-flight appearances so far which have led to doubts over his future at the club and his place at Euro 2012.
Torino will apparently ask for the player on loan should they successfully win promotion to Serie A.
Juventus, meanwhile, have an admirer in boss Antonio Conte given that he worked with the 24-year-old at Arezzo and Bari.
Paris SG sporting director Leonardo knows the centre-back well too as he bossed him at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza last term.
