The German, who converted his surprise third-place qualifying spot into fifth position in today's Italian Grand Prix, is one of several names being linked to replace Felipe Massa at the famous Italian team next season.
"It's definitely something I wouldn't deny which I'm definitely interested in, it's a no-brainer," Hulkenberg said about the possibility of joining Ferrari to BBC Sport. "I don't know if it will happen. Time will tell."
Sebastian Vettel won the race at Monza to stretch his championship advantage over Alonso to 55 points.
