Liverpool defensive midfielder has reportedly undergone a medical with Inter, and is set to sign on loan for the club.
A deal for the 29-year-old should then be made permanent upon the expiration of his contract with the Reds this summer, according to Sky Sport Italia.
The Brazilian arrived from Gremio in 2007, and has since made 291 appearances for Liverpool.
Playing time has been limited under Jurgen Klopp this term however, with Leiva starting just three times in the domestic campaign this season.
