Two leading Italian sports papers have reported that Walter Mazzarri will be sacked at the end of the season should Inter fail to qualify for Europe.
The Nerazzurri are currently fifth in the table after their 2-2 draw with Livorno on Monday evening.
But with four clubs within six points, there are genuine fears at San Siro that they may be on a slide outside of the European places.
Both Gazzetta dello Sport and Corriere dello Sport warn that should that be the case, Erick Thohir will fire his Coach, with the Indonesian owner entrusting a transfer war chest to another tactician over the summer.
Corriere dello Sport believe that Frank De Boer and Sinisa Mihajlovic will be contacted if Mazzarri is shown the door.
