There are reports Italy have contacted Alex Telles to see if the Porto full-back wants to represent the Azzurri.
According to Il Tempo newspaper, over the last few days an informal approach was made to the 23-year-old Brazilian.
He has Serie A experience with Inter, albeit short-lived, as he lasted one season on loan from Galatasaray.
Over the summer, Telles then transferred to FC Porto.
He already has an Italian passport, so would be ready for a call-up at any moment.
