Romelu Lukaku has been in superb form for Inter Milan, with 15 goals in 17 appearances this season, but boss Antonio Conte is keen to strengthen their back-up striking options.
Former Manchester United forward Alexis Sanchez has only scored twice this campaign while Lautaro Martinez has been linked with a move away and cast doubt over his long-term future in late October.
According to Corriere Dello Sport, Inter view Liverpool striker Divock Origi as an excellent back-up option to provide cover and competition for Lukaku.
Having his international team-mate Lukaku at the club would also help grease the wheels of a move to the San Siro.
Origi, 25, is however contracted at Anfield until 2024 and could well be a part of Jurgen Klopp's long-term plans.
The Reds have discussed a potential swap deal between Origi and centre-back Ozan Kabak with Bundesliga side Schalke to help solve their defensive injury woes.
Conte's side are currently locked in a tight title race, lying one point and one place behind city rivals and league leaders AC Milan in Serie A.
Inter host relegation-threatened Crotone on Sunday morning, with the chance to briefly overtake Stefano Pioli's side if they avoid defeat.
