Inter are ready to offer Atalanta the services of Matias Silvestre in exchange for German Denis once the January transfer window opens.
According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, the San Siro giants will look to sign a player to act as cover for Diego Milito.
In a bid to tempt the Bergamo club to release their own Argentine hitman, the Beneamata are ready to sacrifice Silvestre.
The centre-back is actually on loan in Milan from Palermo, but he has struggled for action so far this term.
The 28-year-old has appeared in just two Serie A matches for the Meazza boys.
Denis, who has two goals in six matches this season, netted 16 in 33 for the Stadio Azzurri d’Italia outfit.
