Inter are reportedly ready to offer Sampdoria cash and the promising Francesco Bardi in return for Mauro Icardi.
The Argentine youngster, 20, is known to be a top target for the Nerazzurri and talks have already commenced regarding a summer move.
Samp value the striker at around the €15m mark, but the San Siro giants are hoping to include a player as part payment.
According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, that player is set to be highly-rated goalkeeper Bardi, who is currently on loan at Novara.
The former Livorno player, born in January 1992, has represented Italy at Under-17, U-18, U-19 and U-21 level.
