Livorno have made no secret of their desire to sign Inter defender Nelson Rivas, and their president admitted to Radio Radio that they were "very interested" in the Colombian last week.
According to the most recent reports from 24oredisport.com, today could be the day that sees the error-prone 26-year-old complete his loan move.
Rivas has given his assent to the transfer and official confirmation of the move is expected within hours.
The Amaranto have already strengthened their defence with the signings of Dario Knezevic and Mirko Pieri, and president Aldo Spinelli believes that Rivas will provide crucial experience for the team.
Livorno won promotion back to Italy's top flight last season after being relegated in 2007-08, but the Tuscan side face a difficult task to stay in Serie A beyond this season.
After playing out a 0-0 draw with Cagliari yesterday, Gennaro Ruotolo's men face a difficult trip to Napoli next weekend.
