Schalke 04 winger Daniel Caligiuri admits it is “a dream to wear the Italy jersey” and represent the country of his parents.
The 30-year-old was born and raised in Germany, but has never played for Die Mannschaft.
“I really hope for a call-up, especially for the Euro Nations League!” Caligiuri told newspaper Bild.
“It is a dream to wear the Italy jersey one day.”
The right-sided winger moved from Wolfsburg to Schalke in January for €2.5m.
