There are reports Claudio Ranieri is already at Inter headquarters to sign a contract following Gian Piero Gasperini's dismissal.
The former Chelsea, Juventus and Roma Coach has been the hot favourite to take over after Gasperini was sacked this morning.
According to those outside the Nerazzurri club headquarters, Ranieri arrived at around 17.00 UK time.
He is set to sign a contract to June 30, 2012 with an option for the 2012-13 campaign and performance-related bonuses.
Ranieri is expected to be the 17th Coach in the Massimo Moratti era.
