Inter forward Eder is set to more than double his current wages when he completes a move from the Nerazzurri to Chinese Super League side Jiangsu Suning, according to Sky Sport.

The Italian-Brazilian has made 86 appearances in all competitions for Inter since joining from Sampdoria in January 2016, but is now poised to leave the club with the TV station reporting on Wednesday that an offer in the region of €5-6 million had been accepted for the player.

Eder, 31, is due to earn a gross figure of €27 million in wages during his two-year contract, which would represent a remarkable increase in wages compared to what he currently earns at Inter.

Jiangsu Suning, the other club controlled by Inter’s majority shareholders Suning, were unwilling to make the Nerazzurri a higher offer than €5-6 million, as it would have triggered the Chinese Super League’s luxury tax rule and forced them to double their spending (all clubs that sign overseas players for more than €6 million are required to pay the federation a tax of the same amount, which is poured into the development of grassroots football in China).

However Inter have accepted the offer, as they would nonetheless stand to make a small capital gain from the €5-6 million fee, which means there is a strong chance that the deal goes through.
