Inter Milan will turn to Liverpool's Xabi Alonso should they miss out on Frank Lampard, according to reports in Italy.
Alonso had been strongly linked with a summer move to Juventus before the Serie A giants ended their interest in the Spanish schemer.
The Reds had lined up Gareth Barry to replace Alonso, but found agreeing a fee with Aston Villa a tough nut to crack.
Inter, under the guidance of new manager Jose Mourinho, are keen to bolster their midfield options and have been considering options.
The Nerazzurri have made no secret of their desire to bring in Chelsea's Lampard, but so far no fee has been agreed for his services.
With Mourinho requesting midfield reinforcements and having failed in a move for Napoli's Marek Hamsik, Alonso is now on their radar.
