Antonio Conte is eyeing up a surprise reunion with departing Chelsea skipper Gary Cahill, according to a report.
The experienced defender will officially leave the Blues following seven years of service when his contract expires at the end of the month.
Italian outlet Sport Mediaset claims that Cahill may continue playing at the highest level as Conte, appointed Inter boss three weeks ago, wants him to form part of his new-look side.
Conte is said to prefer Cahill to Miranda, though he has yet to approach the 33-year-old – who he worked with for two seasons at Chelsea – with an offer.
Speaking at the start of the month, Cahill said he will bide his time before making a decision on his future.
Newly-promoted Aston Villa have also been linked with the former Bolton Wanderers centre-back.
