It’s reported Inter and Milan are considering an exchange of loans between Alessandro Matri and Zdravko Kuzmanovic.
According to Sky Sport Italia, the two neighbouring clubs are prepared to help each other out in their tricky situations.
The Rossoneri need to off-load the misfiring Matri, who has scored just one goal in all competition since arriving from Juventus for €11m in August.
He has a list of contenders for his signature, including Fiorentina, West Ham United and Bologna.
Meanwhile, Kuzmanovic wants more playing time after the 26-year-old Serbia international managed a grand total of 251 minutes of football this season.
The defensive midfielder is not part of Walter Mazzarri’s plans and will have even less chance of breaking into the starting XI now that Inter are out of the Coppa Italia.
He would be available for Champions League competition, unlike new Milan signing Keisuke Honda.
