Inter are thought to be preparing a bid for Bayer Leverkusen striker Andre Schurrle as a cheaper alternative to Lucas Moura and Gaston Ramirez.
The Nerazzurri are eager to sign a new creative forward for this season, although first choice Lucas of San Paolo is in talks with Manchester United.
Another option is Bologna’s trequartista Ramirez, but a new name has appeared on their wish-list.
It is reported in Tuttosport that Inter are planning a proposal for Bayer Leverkusen forward Schurrle.
The 21-year-old is a full Germany international and has a contract with Bayer until June 2016.
Last year Schurrle had been in advanced negotiations with Chelsea over a £23.5m move.
