Sevilla striker Luis Fabiano is said to be at the centre of a bidding war between Inter and Juventus.
Both Italian giants have expressed a desire to sign a prolific hitman in the January transfer window.
Diego Milito's recent injury has convinced Inter that they need an alternative for the second half of the season.
Inter President Massimo Moratti admitted that the club would be exploring its options right until deadline day.
As for Juventus there is concern about a lack of goals up front, especially in light of Fabio Quagliarella's season-ending injury.
La Gazzetta dello Sport understands that Inter boss Leonardo called Fabiano's agent Jose Fuentes yesterday to register his interest.
Juventus have already been in touch, asking Sevilla if they could take the Brazil international on loan until the end of the season.
The Andalusia based outfit are holding out for €10m, a figure that Inter and Juventus don't want to spend.
