Representatives from Sampdoria and Inter will meet later this week to discuss Matias Silvestre, according to reports.
Sky Sport Italia claim that the Bluerchiati are in the market for a new central defender, and see the Nerazzurri man as the ideal candidate to bolster their backline.
The Argentine defender has been a peripheral figure at San Siro since his arrival in 2012, and even spent last season on loan at rivals at Milan.
Walter Mazzarri’s men are thought to be keen to get rid of Silvestre, and will discuss a potential deal with the Marassi outfit at the weekend.
Initial negotiations could be for a one-year loan with the option to buy outright.
