The Brazilian has been plying his trade with Chinese Super League club Jiangsu Suning since departing Stamford Bridge in 2016, but is now keen on a return to a club competing in Europe, and Inter seem to fit the bill.
Speaking to Sky Italy, he said: "If I had to go back to Europe and do it in a big club like Inter, it would be a happy moment for me and my family, and if it happens I will be ready.
"The question of the hiring not only depends on me, there are different parties involved - the negotiations must satisfy both clubs. I hope we can reach an agreement and go to Inter.
"I must continue doing well here to hope to return to Europe."
