Inter President Massimo Moratti is considering replacing Claudio Ranieri with Laurent Blanc at the end of the season.
According to a report in Le Parisien, the French national boss is at the top of the list of possible alternatives for the Italian.
The 46-year-old Blanc knows Inter well after spending two years with the Nerazzurri towards the end of his playing career.
Blanc started his coaching career in 2007 when he took charge of Bordeaux and was named as the new French boss in the summer of 2010. His contract expires after Euro 2012.
Also on Moratti’s short-list is Portuguese tactician Andre Villas-Boas after he was sacked by Chelsea at the weekend.
Ranieri, who replaced Gian Piero Gasperini in September, is contracted until June 2013, but his Inter side have collected just two points from the last 21 on offer in Serie A.
