Sky Sport Italia claim Inter are on the verge of exchanging Saphir Taider for Southampton’s Daniel Osvaldo.
It is well known that the Nerazzurri are interested in signing Osvaldo, who refused to return from his summer vacation and was put on the market by the Saints.
According to the latest reports in Italy, Inter have struck a basic deal to take Osvaldo on loan with an option to buy at the end of the season.
In exchange, Southampton would welcome Algerian international midfielder Taider on similar terms.
Osvaldo was on loan at Juventus from January to June, scoring one Serie A goal.
It is also the chance for Taider to experience the Premier League, as his transfer to West Ham United collapsed in January just as the move seemed to be certain.
