Cagliari are about to complete a double swoop for Inter defender Diego Godin and Roma centre-back Federico Fazio, it’s claimed.
While Fazio was known to be a target and negotiations have been going strong for several days, Godin is a very new development.
La Gazzetta dello Sport claim the Uruguay international is on the verge of accepting a permanent transfer to Sardinia.
Sportitalia maintain this is a free transfer, so Godin has been released early to get his wages off the books.
He only joined Inter a year ago as a free agent from Atletico Madrid, but is not a first choice under Antonio Conte and his salary is considered excessive.
Rennes had been interested in bringing in Godin, but it seems Cagliari won that particular race.
Fazio is also expected to have his medical over the weekend after Roma accepted a bid worth €1.5m plus bonuses.
