Cesare Prandelli could reportedly quit the Italian national side after Euro 2012 to become the new boss of Inter.
According to reports on Monday, Nerazzurri chief Massimo Moratti wants the former Fiorentina tactician to take charge of the San Siro giants in the summer.
Although Prandelli is tied to the Italian Football Federation until the summer of 2014, he has admitted in the past that he does miss the day-to-day duties of club football.
Sky Sport Italia are this morning suggesting that Moratti is ready to hand the tactician a three-year contract at the Meazza worth €4m a season.
Prandelli would replace Andrea Stramaccioni who, in turn, would return to the Primavera set-up after being asked to replace Claudio Ranieri in March.
Should Prandelli stay loyal to the Azzurri, the Beneamata would then turn their attention to three other candidates.
Athletic Bilbao boss Marcelo Bielsa is liked, while France tactician Laurent Blanc and Luciano Spalletti of Zenit have also been associated.
Inter look like they will miss out of qualification for next season’s Champions League. They are currently seventh in the table, six points behind third-placed Lazio.
