Napoli left-back Faouzi Ghoulam is reportedly the subject of a €9m bid from Inter.
The Nerazzurri are believed to have given up on signing Guilherme Siqueira from Atletico Madrid, and have instead turned their attention to the Algerian international.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport, the Beneamata are offering to take Ghoulam on loan for one season, for a fee of €1m.
There would then be a mandatory buyout, worth €7m, with another €1m in bonuses, for a total of €9m.
However, the newspaper notes that the Partenopei are not keen on the idea of selling the 24-year-old.
