The Italian media claim Inter will stage a swoop for Chelsea’s Didier Drogba or Brazilian talent Leandro Damiao.
The Nerazzurri are struggling badly at the moment, although they have qualified top of their group in the Champions League.
According to the Corriere dello Sport, the club is already looking ahead to next season as well as January reinforcements.
Diego Milito is expected to leave and it remains to be seen whether Inter will pay the €15.5m to buy Mauro Zarate from Lazio when his loan period expires.
This morning’s front page of the Corriere has Chelsea striker Drogba as the major target for next summer, especially as the 33-year-old will be out of contract.
Ivory Coast international Drogba has already been linked with Milan this term, but would be cup-tied.
Another option for January is Internacional hitman Leandro Damiao, a 22-year-old who is on the wish lists of many top European sides despite his €30m price-tag.
There has been a lot of talk around Universidad de Chile forward Eduardo Vargas, though Zenit St Petersburg and Napoli are thought to be in the lead.
