Cagliari look set to swoop for Lyon's Brazilian midfielder Ederson, it is reported.
The Sardinians need a replacement for Andrea Lazzari, who they sold to Fiorentina this summer.
While Gelson Fernandes was an option, it's now believed they are targeting another Brazilian.
Ederson was once valued at €13m, but injuries have seen his price-tag drop to a far more affordable €5m.
Still only 25, he can play in different wide midfield systems and is out of contract in June 2012.
However, Cagliari face competition for his signature from Lazio.
