GERVINHO is a shock transfer target for Inter Milan, according to reports.
And Calciomercato reckon Antonio Conte could make a move for the former Arsenal flop.
The report adds Inter did try and land the forward in the closing hours of the summer window but a deal could not get sorted in time.
Gervinho, 33, is currently at Parma, where his contract runs out in 2022.
He managed nine goals in 32 appearances for the Serie A side last season - despite allegedly going AWOL in February - but is yet to get off the mark in four games this term.
The Ivorian scored 11 goals in 63 Arsenal matches between 2011 and 2013 before joining Roma.
And Inter are confident they would be able to negotiate a deal when the January window opens thanks to the strong relations between them and Parma.
Conte has Lautauro Martinez, Alexis Sanchez and Andrea Pinamonti at his disposal as other attacking options on top of Lukaku, who has scored seven in seven.
Argentine Martinez - linked with a move to Barcelona - has three in seven to be the second-top scorer but Sanchez and Pinamonti are yet to get off the mark.
Only Danilo D'Ambrosio, Achraf Hakimi and Roberto Gagliardini have added goals for Inter this season.
It is that lack of goal threat that was particularly apparent on Wednesday as they were unable to break Shakhtar Donetsk's defence in their Champions League goalless draw.
