Inter Milan are reportedly preparing an offer for Romelu Lukaku that would see them take the Belgian on loan for two years.
The Nerazzurri are extremely keen on the Manchester United striker but do not want to pay over the odds for the 26-year old and are instead offering £9 million for a two-year loan deal.
According to Sky in Italy, Inter would then have an obligation to buy Lukaku for £54 million once the loan is completed.
This alternative offer has come about due to Inter struggling to cough up United's valuation of £80 million for Lukaku because of the difficulty in getting rid of Mauro Icardi.
Lukaku's agent Federico Pastorello had talks with Inter in Milan on Tuesday and confirmed that both his client and the Italian side want the move to happen.
"Yes, he's publicly expressed his plans and desires," Pastorello said.
"We'll see what happens. Lukaku is a dream, a difficult one to make happen as such, but I believe nothing is impossible. It's not impossible and Inter is trying hard."
Inter recently appointed Antonio Conte as manager and the 49-year old is desperate to sign Lukaku after missing out on him to United in a £75 million deal when he was at Chelsea.
Lukaku paid Conte a huge compliment earlier this month when he said that the former Juventus boss is "the best manager in the world".
