Internazionale fans will be hoping their club's bright first half of the season will be continued during the second half of the 2017/18 Serie A campaign and the Nerazzurri may be about to receive some help in maintaining their push for a top three finish in the Italian top flight.
Luciano Spalletti's men may no longer realistically be able to mount a serious title challenge, having fallen behind league leaders Napoli by nine points, but with just two defeats to their name in their opening 20 matches, Inter are proving to be a tough proposition for opposing teams in Italy, this season.
And now, they may be about to add a former Chelsea midfielder to their ranks.
Ramires, who left Stamford Bridge for Chinese Super League outfit Jiangsu Suning, two years ago, has revealed he wishes to return to Europe, with Inter being his preferred destination.

The 30-year-old midfielder lifted a Premier League title, Champions League, Europa League, FA Cup and League Cup during his six years with the Blues, before trading England for the Far East and far, far bigger wages, in 2016.
After a couple of years in China, however, Ramires is looking to challenge himself once again and, according to Sky Italy, the Italian giants are his most likely destination.
"It's not all down to me, but I'd be very happy to return to Europe. I hope an agreement can be reached with Inter.
"It would be a great moment for me and my family. I'll be ready, if it does happen.
"As far as the wages are concerned, there are different parties involved and the negotiations need to satisfy both clubs.
"I just hope an agreement can be reached and I can join Inter. I didn't speak with [Inter boss Luciano] Spalletti when Inter came to China and I've never met him, but he's a great coach and I knew about him before he joined Inter.
"I'm pleased that somebody who knows so much about football like him has his eye on me.
"I just need to keep on doing well here and hope that I can go back to Europe."
No potential fee has yet been mentioned for the Brazilian who set Jiangsu back £25 million, two years ago. Ramires has made 70 appearances for the Chinese Super League side, scoring 17 goals.
