The Bayer Leverkusen defender is to leave the Bundesliga club in the summer and is likely to have a host of clubs chasing his signature.
The Brazilian international is due to stay at the BayArena until 2007 but his current club recently admitted it was unlikely he would remain with them beyond this season.
Inter have endured a difficult season in Serie A and are looking to strengthen their defence during the summer.
They are thought to be willing to offer Bayer Colombian defender Ivan Cordoba in part exchange, as they look to sneak in front of the likes of Real Madrid to sign him.
