There have been repeated links with the Nigeria international since Walter Mazzarri took over and it seems likely there will be a summer offer for the midfielder.
“Inter? What I can tell you is that I met with my client and the directors and they are interested in him,” agent John Shittu told FcInterNews.it.
“He is a great player who won the Champions League and the Africa Cup of Nations, so he is suited to the Nerazzurri’s standards.
The representative was asked if he had met with Inter director Piero Ausilio, but refused to answer.
“I cannot tell you anything more on the negotiations. The fact remains that Mikel now has a contract with the Blues.”
Inter would prefer to take Mikel on loan from Chelsea, otherwise the price tag is £12m.
