Inter transfer chief Marco Branca has flown out to Brazil in an effort to complete the capture of Juan Jesus.
The Internacional stopper, still just 20, has been heavily paired with the Nerazzurri over the last six months.
A transfer fee of €3.7m has been agreed with the South American outfit and personal terms have also been finalised.
All that is missing are the signatures.
Meanwhile, Branca will make use of his trip to Brazil to also speak to Sao Paulo about Brazilian international Lucas.
The midfielder, not yet 20, is liked by the San Siro giants but the Brazilian giants value him at around €25m.
