The Algerian international hasn’t been able to impress manager Massimiliano Allegri of his worth, and is being considered by Torino and Palermo.
With 19-year-old Mattia De Sciglio being ahead of Mesbah in the squad, it seems likely that the 28-year-old will move elsewhere.
Torino and Palermo were both looking for a low cost solution to bolster their defences this summer, but a deal was never finalized.
Now with the January window just a few months away, both teams are gearing up for another race for the experienced defender.
Palermo are looking to fill a spot on the defensive side after the departure of Federico Balzaretti for Roma in the summer.
Mesbah has only started one game for the Rossoneri this season.
