And Todo Fichajes claim Argentinian Simeone, 50, is the clear top target for the Italian giants.
Conte, 51, was thought to have been close to leaving the San Siro last summer amid reports of conflicts with the Inter board.
Now it is thought he could depart as early as this summer, although 2022 and 2023 have also been mentioned.
Conte’s men have the ideal chance to extend their advantage as they host relegation-threatened Cagliari on Sunday.
Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez saw off Sassuolo 2-1 for their tenth straight league win on Wednesday night.
Meanwhile, Luis Suarez has been linked with a possible return to Liverpool as he is reportedly unhappy with Simeone’s tactics.
Todofichajes say the pair have a “difficult” relationship.
And ex-Barcelona frontman Suarez, 33, is said to have a clause in his contract enabling him to leave this summer with no penalty.
