Cagliari president Massimo Cellini is ready to sign off on the deal which will see defender Marco Andreolli arrive on a season-long loan and Robert Acquafresca join in co-ownership. Inter will also hand over £3.5 million cash.

Talks have also centred on the future of Victor Obinna, who is owned by Inter, despite his long-term loan with Chievo Verona. The Nigerian could replace Suazo at Caglari next season.
