Inter want a striker immediately and are juggling Sampdoria's Eder and Paris Saint-Germain's Ezequiel Lavezzi, say reports.
The Nerazzurri picked up only one point from their last two games and their moves on the transfer market are becoming increasingly urgent.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Coach Roberto Mancini wants a solid poacher before the end of January.
The ideal man for the job is believed to be long-time target Lavezzi, but it seems much more likely that the Argentinian will join the team in the summer.
Instead, Inter may opt to campaign for Sampdoria's Eder, who is currently second in Serie A's top scorer table, after Napoli's Gonzalo Higuain.
