Wednesday medical for Eto'o

Samuel Eto'o is set to have a medical in Rome on Wednesday ahead of his expected move from Inter to Anzhi.

Officials from the Russian club are again in Milan today and they are expected to conclude talks for the Nerazzurri striker.

The Italian outfit will net around €27m for the Cameroon international, with La Gazzetta dello Sport claiming that he will earn €20.5m a season in wages.

The former Barcelona star will thus become the highest paid player, in terms of just club salary, in the history of the game.

Eto'o will reportedly undergo his medical at Villa Stuart tomorrow morning before flying out to Moscow.

Meanwhile, Inter boss Gian Piero Gasperini met with directors Marco Branca and Piero Ausilio at the club's HQ in Corso Vittorio Emanuele earlier today.

It's understood that the three men discussed possible transfer targets before the window closes on August 31.
