Inter are thinking of Chelsea's Juan Cuadrado and Tottenham Hotspur's Erik Lamela as alternatives to Joao Mario.
The Sporting CP winger seems likely to end up with the Nerazzurri in the end, but the Italian club is preparing a plan B just in case.
According to the Corriere dello Sport, the Biscione is currently reviewing two names that would work well as alternatives to the Portuguese.
The first is Chelsea's Cuadrado, who is being pursued by Juventus as well. The second is former Roma midfielder Lamela, who is currently playing for Tottenham.
For the moment, though, these links are only speculative, as there is no offer on the table yet for either of the two players.
