Reports in Italy claim that Benfica have made enquiries for the attacking midfielder.
The Greek international is well down the pecking order at the Giuseppe Meazza, with Roberto Mancini having a number of options in midfield.
Benfica coach Giovanni Trapattoni is thought to have put Karagounis to the top of his wanted list for January when the transfer window reopens.
The Euro 2004 winner is believed to be keen on a move away from Inter as he searches for regular first team action.
Karagounis was expected to leave Inter in the summer only for the club to block the move following his impressive performances at Euro 2004, but it is unlikely they will stand in his way this time.
