Inter will only sign Dias Felipe if they progress in the Europa League against Celtic on Thursday, according to reports.
The Brazilian is a free agent after leaving crisis-club Parma, and has been training with the Nerazzurri with a view to joining.
The deadline for free agents is Friday, but Gianluca Di Marzio’s website reports that the Beneamata will only decide whether to complete the signing after Thursday’s game.
The site believes that Inter are only interested in signing another defender if they know that they will have to juggle Europa League and Serie A commitments, so will wait until after their meeting with the Scottish side.
Roberto Mancini’s men have the advantage in the tie, having scored three away goals in Glasgow, meaning that avoiding defeat would see them progress, unless Celtic score three or more goals.
