Genoa goalkeeper Mattia Perin could be set for a recall to the Italian Under-21 set-up.
Perin, despite being heralded as a star of the future, was dropped by previous Azzurrini boss Devis Mangia.
The latter made the Inter-owned Francesco Bardi his first choice at the past European Under-21 Championships.
Present boss Gigi Di Biagio, though, has put the net-minder on alert for the December 17 test against an Italy B side.
Perin will find out on Thursday whether he has made the final squad or not.
