The Chile international impressed at the World Cup and Inter have made no secret of their desire to lure him to San Siro from Cardiff City.
Cardiff only signed Medel in August last year, but he was unable to prevent the Welsh club being relegated from the Premier League.

Medel made 35 appearances in all competitions for Cardiff last season.
