Boca Juniors midfielder Nahitan Nandez was mobbed by Cagliari fans at the airport as he flew in to complete his transfer.
The Uruguay international is expected to cost €18m plus bonuses, with Boca receiving a 10 per cent cut of any future move.
After months of negotiations that have been dragging on since January, the 23-year-old is finally ready to undergo a medical.
He was greeted at the airport by dozens of Cagliari supporters who were cheering and singing his name.
Nandez is the third big signing for the Sardinians in midfield this summer after Marko Rog from Napoli and Radja Nainggolan on loan from Inter.
