Inter are looking at Eastern European strikers, including Evgen Konoplyanka, Andriy Yarmolenko and Balazs Dzsudzsak.
According to Tuttosport, the Nerazzurri are writing up a Plan B for their January reinforcement in attack in case of problems getting Fabio Borini from Liverpool.
The first candidate is Dnipro forward Konoplyanka, who will be out of contract in June 2015 and is therefore looking for an alternative club.
The 25-year-old has also been linked with Fiorentina and Wolfsburg.
Dinamo Kiev striker Yarmolenko is another Ukraine international, although his contract lasts until June 2016.
As for Dzsudzsak, he is a 27-year-old Hungary international who can play on the right or the left and will be a free agent when his contract with Dinamo Moscow expires in December.
