Internazionale and Fiorentina officials have met to discuss the futures of marksman Luca Toni and defender Alessandro Potenza, according to press reports.
Italian Under-21 international Potenza was at Real Mallorca on a season-long loan from the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza last term.
The Spaniards have the first option on the 22-year-old until the end of June, but they look likely to turn down the chance and he could move to Viola in part exchange for Serie A top-scorer Toni.
Speculation in the Italian media suggests that a meeting between Nerazzurri technical director Marco Branca and his Stadio Artemio Franchi colleague Pantaleo Corvino was used to discuss a possible deal.
Fiorentina boss Cesare Prandelli has already insisted he will keep the 31-goal man, but the club's alleged involvement in the referee-fixing scandal tarring Italian football have opened up any number of possibilities.
Should Prandelli's side be punished, Toni could well be wheeling his way to Inter in a swap deal, that could also involve Brazilian frontman Adriano.
The investigation continues.
