Inter are pondering selling Davide Santon to Genoa, according to Tuttosport.
The 19-year-old has featured little under Rafael Benitez and he is expected to leave the club in the near future.
The Italian giants are believed to be willing to offer him as part of the deal for Andrea Ranocchia, who is co-owned with Genoa.
To sweeten the Ranocchia credit with Genoa chief Enrico Preziosi, Inter are willing to let Santon join them on a co-ownership deal.
And with Domenico Criscito linked with Bayern Munich and a host of other top sides, Genoa may view Santon as the ideal replacement.
However, such a move is unlikely to happen until June, as Ranocchia pledged allegiance to Genoa on Thursday, insisting a January exit was far from standard.
