Gazzetta dello Sport says Conte is looking to reunite with Kante this summer in a bid to strengthen the club's midfield.
Kante struggled for fitness this season, featuring in just 22 Premier League games under Frank Lampard.
And with the Frenchman regularly played out of position, with Jorginho often preferred in the holding role, Kante is reportedly no longer deemed indispensable.
Inter are expected to continue talks with Tottenham's Tanguy Ndombele after their Europa League campaign.
But it seems as if Kante is another option for the Nerazzurri.
