Dragovic, who joined Basel for Austria Vienna back in 2011, has attracted plenty of interest around Europe following an excellent season in the Swiss Super League, where he helped his side to a third straight league title.

Basel president Bernhard Heusler had previously revealed that the Nerazzurri had made an enquiry about the 22-year-old's availabity, and the player has now admitted he would find it difficult to turn down a move to the Giuseppe Meazza.

"It is the dream of every player to go to Inter," he told Corriere dello Sport. "And I'm not different.

"My agent told me two to three weeks ago that there was interest from Inter. They are a great team with a great history.

"At this moment I am only thinking about being in shape for the upcoming season and resuming my training. However, I must admit, I would be happy if a move went through."

Heusler also revealed that Basel have started looking for a possible replacement for Dragovic, which could further intensify speculation that a deal is not too far away from being agreed on.

"With Inter, the deal is not yet complete," he said. "But we started to look around for a replacement for Dragovic.

"It would be be unprofessional not to."

Following a disappointing ninth-placed finish in Serie A last season, Inter are looking to rebuild and reclaim their place among Italy's elite under new coach Walter Mazzarri.
