Mancini has been linked with the post as Cesare Prandelli ponders stepping down after the World Cup.
"If I was called then it is only logical that I would talk about it," he told Quotidiano Nazionale.
"I would be very happy to discuss such an opportunity because, let us be clear about this, Italy is Italy - it is not a club side.
"To be the Coach of the Nazionale has a special appeal, it's unique, therefore of course I would talk about it."
