Inter have launched a bid for the Austria international.
"Inter represent a great club, so it would be a dream for me to wear the Nerazzurri jersey," he told Blick.
"The two clubs are negotiating right now and I hope they can reach an agreement quickly. I stay and wait for further developments with the hope of joining Inter.
"For now I will play for Basel, even if it's not easy with all these thoughts of Inter in my head."
