Diego Forlan and Carlos Tevez are the main candidates to replace Samuel Eto'o at Inter, but Lazio's Mauro Zarate is another surprise option.
The Nerazzurri have reportedly agreed a €27m transfer fee with Anzhi, which between this cash and saved wages will bring an extra €99m into the club coffers.
Atletico Madrid striker Forlan has already confirmed he is waiting for Eto'o to be sold so he can complete his own move to San Siro.
There is also interest in want-away Manchester City striker Tevez, who could join along with Forlan rather than as an alternative to the Uruguayan.
However, the Gazzetta dello Sport suggests there is a third option available for the Nerazzurri.
Lazio have made it clear Zarate is available for sale if someone activates his €20m buy-out clause.
Newspapers claim Inter will try to take Zarate on loan with an option to buy at the end of the season, but this does not sit well with the Biancocelesti.
The Argentine is pushed increasingly to the sidelines at the Stadio Olimpico by the arrival of Miroslav Klose and Djibril Cissè.
