Internacional are expected to announce the signing of Fiorentina midfielder Mario Bolatti this week.

The South American champs have been working on a deal for several weeks over the Argentine.

"I am working with Bolatti's arrival in mind, yes. He will be a starter, that's why he was contracted. He will first have to undergo a medical before arriving," Inter coach Celso Roth said.

Over the weekend on twitter, Inter president Roberto Siegmann claimed the transfer was "99.9%" certain.
