A deal with Parma has been struck for some time, bringing Belfodil to Inter in exchange for €10m (£8.6m) cash plus the loans with options to buy for Antonio Cassano and Matias Silvestre.

That move is expected to be made official either today or tomorrow.

In the meantime, the Nerazzurri are pushing for a new midfielder after Roma took the lead in the race for Cagliari’s Radja Nainggolan.

According to Brazilian media Lancenet and La Gazzetta dello Sport, their target is Sao Paulo starlet Wellington.

While Nainggolan is valued at €15m (£12.8m), Wellington would be available for closer to €5m (£4.3m) and is in difficult contract renegotiations with Sao Paulo.
