Inter Milan have a deal in place for River Plate stopper Nelson Rivas.

The Colombia international is regarded as the hard man of the Argentine championship and gets around with the nickname 'Tyson' after boxing champ Mike Tyson.

Rivas was all set to join Serie BBologna before Inter made their interest known. While negotiations continue with Roma for Cristian Chivu, Inter also have a deal on the table for Rivas.
