Inter are understood to be talking with Southampton this week over a proposed deal to take striker Dani Osvaldo.
Reports quickly developed on Tuesday evening that the Nerazzurri were in for the 28-year-old, who spent the final six months of last season on loan at Juventus.
The Gazzetta dello Sport reiterate that talks are progressing and a potential swap deal involving Saphir Taider or Hugo Campagnaro moving in the opposite direction remains most probable.
Tuttosport believe that talks began yesterday through intermediary Claudio Vigorelli proposing Inter’s initial intention to take the forward on loan for next season, with a non-obligatory purchase option included.
However, with Saints apparently rejecting this offer, the counter-proposal of the player exchange was presented, which reportedly will also be on an initial loan basis.
