Inter Milan have reportedly reached a verbal agreement with Bayern Munich for the transfer of Yann Sommer.

The Italians are desperate to land a new goalkeeper as soon as possible following the departures of Andre Onana and Samir Handanovic.

The management identified the Switzerland international as the best available profile for the job.

The Nerazzurri had already reached an accord with the 34-year-old. As we reported earlier today, the player has been pushing to break away from the Bundesliga champions.

On the other hand, the Bavarians have been insisting on maintaining Sommer until they find a competent replacement.

But based on emerging reports from both Germany and Italy, Inter have managed to make a significant breakthrough in their negotiations with Bayern Munich.

According to Sky Sport Deutschland via FcInterNews, Sommer’s transfer to the Nerazzurri is now imminent as the two clubs have found a verbal agreement.

The German source expects the goalkeeper to complete a switch to the Italian giants by the start of next week. The report expects the operation to cost Inter between 5 and 6 million euros.

Inter Milan Are On The Cusp Of Finalizing An Agreement With Bayern Munich For Yann Sommer

For its part, Sky Sport Italia (via FcInterNews) is reporting a similar story but with slightly different figures.

The Italian source also believes that the Beneamata and Bayern have reached the final stages of the negotiations.

But unlike the German source, Sky Sport Italia doesn’t expect Inter to pay the goalkeeper’s release clause (six million euros).

The Italian report expects the Nerazzurri to buy Sommer for 4 million euros in addition to bonuses.

We can expect further development on this hot front in the next few days or possibly hours.
