Inter are reportedly preparing an offer for Zenit St Petersburg defender Domenico Criscito.
The Italian international only signed a renewal in March, and is contracted to the Russian side until 2018.
However, new rules on foreigners in the Russian Premier League this season could limit his playing time, with only six foreign players allowed on the pitch at once.
The Zenitchiki squad is heavily reliant on foreign talent, with Axel Witsel, Javi Garcia and Hulk among the non-Russian elements of the team.
Gianluca Di Marzio’s website reports that, with Euro 2016 at the end of the season, Criscito would welcome a return to Serie A.
The site claims the former Juventus defender has been in contact with the Nerazzurri, and is now waiting for the Beneamata to present Zenit with an official offer.
