Sunderland boss Gus Poyet says his club are on the verge of sealing a deal for Argentine forward Ignacio Scocco.
The Internacional striker is set to have a medical with the Black Cats this week before finalising a Â£3million move to the Stadium of Light.
Of the impending deal, Poyet said: "I hope so. It's not done, but we are very, very close."
Sunderland were keen on Scocco this past summer but he left homeland club Newellâ€™s Old Boys for Brazilian outfit Inter instead.
