Sunderland hope to tempt Internacional striker Ignacio Scocco to the Premier League ahead of Cardiff City.

Sunderland hope to tempt Internacional striker Ignacio Scocco to the Premier League ahead of Cardiff City.

The Mirror says Scocco - a 28-year-old Argentina international - is set to leave Brazilian club Internacional this month.

The Black Cats' Uruguayan coach Gus Poyet, who speaks Spanish, has been trying to woo him, and the Wembley-bound Wearsiders are now increasingly confident of getting him either on loan or for £6.5million.

Poyet hopes a place in the Capital One Cup final will convince Scocco about joining Sunderland ahead of Cardiff City.
