Inter look set to land striker Luc Castaignos from Feyernoord, but he will not arrive immediately...
Both La Gazzetta dello Sport and Corriere dello Sport report Marco Branca will make a convincing offer for the 19-year-old and will table €5.5 million.
The Dutch side have asked for €6m, but the feeling is the two clubs will settle for a compromise fee.
Once the deal is done, the striker will continue playing in Holland until the end of the season before Inter call him over.
Meanwhile, Inter's move for Emiliano Viviano is running to stand still as Bologna are not interested in resolving the co-ownership in January.
Bologna have shown resistance to the demands of the Nerazzurri, who were looking at Viviano as back up to Julio Cesar.
Any move is likely to be placed on hold until June.
