Inter are close to completing the signing of Cagliari wingback Raoul Bellanova, and could get it done as early as this week.

This according to Italian news outlet, who report that the Nerazzurri are set to sign the 22-year-old for a fee of around €8 million, and could include one or two Primavera players on loan as part of the deal.

Inter are accelerating in their pursuit of Bellanova, who they have identified as their priority target to shore up the wingback positions following the departure of Ivan Perisic.

Everything is in place as far as an agreement with the Rossoblu, and the fee will be for around €8 million, while a player or two could still be included as part of the deal, though only on loan.

Primavera duo Cesare Casadei and Franco Carboni are the two players who have been a part of the talks for Bellanova, and one or both could be sent to the Sardinian team on loan for a season.
