Anzhi arrive for Eto'o talks

Officials from Anzhi Makhachkala have touched down in Italy ahead of further talks with Inter over Samuel Eto'o.

The Russian giants have targeted the Cameroon international striker and a deal is reportedly very close.

Eto'o has already given his consent to the switch so the two clubs now just have to finalise the details.

It's understood that there is still a small difference in terms of Anzhi's transfer fee offer and Inter's request, but a compromise of around €30m is expected to be reached.

Eto'o joined Inter in 2009 from Barcelona as part of the deal which saw Zlatan Ibrahimovic move to the Nou Camp.

The forward, who is tied to Inter until June 2014, will supposedly net a whopping €15m a season from the Russian club.

In 101 games for the Nerazzurri in all competitions, Eto'o has scored an impressive 53 times.
