Inter Milan have wrapped up a deal to sign midfielder Lazar Samardzic from Udinese, with Giovanni Fabbian going the other way.

This according to Sky Sport Italia transfer market expert Gianluca Di Marzio, who reports on his homepage that the Nerazzurri have finalized all the agreements with both Udinese and with the player’s representatives.

Samardzic is now truly an Udinese player in name only.

The agreement between the Nerazzurri and the Friulani is now total. The same is true of that of Inter and Samardzic and his representatives.

According to Di Marzio, in the past couple days, Inter have worked with Samardzic’s agent Rafaela Pimenta to draw up a contract for the German-born Serbia international.

Samardzic will sign a five-year deal with the Nerazzurri. Now, all that is left is the player’s medicals and then putting pen to paper on his contract with his new club.

Reports have suggested that that will happen early next week, possibly Monday.

Then, the Samardzic can join up with his new teammates and start working in training to prepare for next season.

Inter Milan Wrap Up Deal To Sign Lazar Samardzic From Udinese

Di Marzio reports that Inter will sign Samardzic on an initial paid loan deal. The fee for that loan will be around €4 million.

Then, next summer, there will be a mandatory purchase obligation.

The Nerazzurri will sign the 21-year-old on a permanent basis for a fee of around €16 million plus €2-3 million in add-ons.

Meanwhile, young midfielder Giovanni Fabbian is headed in the other direction.

Di Marzio reports that Inter have agreed a separate deal to sell the 20-year-old to the Friulani for €4 million. That is the same amount that the Nerazzurri are paying as a loan fee for Samardzic.

And Inter will have a buyback option on Fabbian worth €12 million. The Nerazzurri had insisted on not losing control of the young midfielder’s future permanently.
