Paolo Cannavaro and could be set to swap defenders and in the January transfer window.

The Azzurri have been looking for a defensive reinforcement since the summer and it appears as though Ranocchia is the latest name to be linked with a move to the south of Italy.

Sky Sport reports that Cannavaro, who has found playing time hard to come by under the Spanish tactician, and cash could be offered to the Nerazzurri for Ranocchia once the transfer window reopens.

The move would also reunite Cannavaro with coach Walter Mazzarri, as the duo worked together for four seasons at the Partenopei.

Cannavaro has made four league appearances for the Azzurri this season while Ranocchia has featured in 11 Serie A matches for the Beneamata.

- A passionate F.C. Internazionale supporter since the young age of 10, my love for the club came about on a family trip to Italy after their signing of Roberto Baggio. Much to the dismay of my father (a Milan fan) my love for the club only grew stronger and has taken me on trips to Genova and Boston to see my club in action. The greatest of these journeys was being blessed by incredible luck (to which this day I still cannot comprehend) which allowed me to travel to Madrid, see the 2010 Champions League Final in the flesh and experience a week-long trip that will probably never be surpassed. Feel free to add me on Twitter to talk about Inter, Italy or calcio in general @Boin44
