Multiple reports state that Hull City are pushing hard to sign Inter defender Andrea Ranocchia.
The centre-back is surplus to requirements at San Siro, and has made just five Serie A appearances this term after spending the second half of last season on loan at Sampdoria.
Now both Gazzetta dello Sport and Sky Sport Italia are reporting that the Tigers are in pole position to sign the Italian international, having made an offer to both club and player.
The Nerazzurri are happy to let him go, so Ranocchia must now decide whether or not he wants to make the move to the English Premier League.
