Inter are reportedly lining up a proposal for Paris Saint-Germain forward Ezequiel Lavezzi, but must sell first.
Pocho would be eager to reunite with his old Napoli Coach Walter Mazzarri and return to Serie A, as contract renegotiations with PSG have faltered.
According to today's edition of Tuttosport, the initial plan is to take Lavezzi on loan with an option to buy at the end of the season.
Inter can raise the necessary funds by selling one or all of Fredy Guarin, Ricky Alvarez and Zdravko Kuzmanovic.
Guarin is waiting for a big European club to come in for him, but so far the Colombian seems unimpressed with the Zenit option.
Alvarez is of interest to Atletico Madrid, but only on loan whereas Inter want to monetise on him for €12m.
Kuzmanovic has interest from Crystal Palace and Leicester City for around €4.5m (£3.8m).
