Internacional defender Juan has admitted that Inter are currently in pursuit of his signature and that he expects both clubs to step up negotiations closer to the re-opening of the transfer window in January.
The 20-year-old has long been linked with a move to the Coppa Italia holders, and Inter now appear to be ready to make their move as Juan has revealed that the clubs will be in touch with each other shortly.
"I know that Internacional will be in contact with Inter, but I do not deal with these things personally, I consider these with my agent," he told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
The publication has also suggested that Inter will propose an offer in the region of €6 million for the versatile defender, who can play at both centre-back and full-back and who won this year's Under-20 World Cup with his native Brazil.
Internacional are currently seventh in the Brasileiro with eight games to play. They are seven points behind leaders Corinthians.
