Inter are reportedly on the verge of signing Fenerbahce midfielder Eljif Elmas for €11m, ahead of competition from Fiorentina, Napoli and Lazio.

According to Turkish website Boxerdegisi.com.tr, the Nerazzurri have been given the green light by Fenerbahce President Ali Koc to close the deal for the 19-year-old.

The website also claims that the teenager could arrive in Milan over the next few days to undergo a medical and finalise his €11m transfer from the Turkish Super Lig team.
