Vidal, 33, was linked with Inter earlier in the summer but things went quiet after May.
However, Antonio Conte, who will continue on the Inter bench next season, brought Vidal’s name up at a meeting about Inter’s market strategy today.
Conte coached the Chilean while in charge of Juventus and the two worked very well together.
Vidal is one of the players Barcelona have decided to sell, making him more accessible to Inter.
With his contract up in June 2021 and Barca wanting to sell him, Vidal would be an affordable option.
Inter are already in contact with Vidal’s agent, who also represents Alexis Sanchez.
Vidal has given the OK for negotiations to proceed and would be happy to move to the San Siro.
