Pablo Daniel Osvaldo's days at Southampton are numbered and his next destination looks likely to be Serie A side Inter.
The Italian international has been a massive disappointment for Southampton and became unwelcome at the club when he attacked teammate Jose Fonte in training.
After spending the end of last season on loan to Juventus, Osvaldo appears to be on the brink of returning to Italy for the 2014-15 season.
Inter are keen to add another striker to their ranks and have missed out on Edin Dzeko, Fernando Torres and Stevan Jovetic.
The striker could sign for the Nerazzurri on a season long loan with the option to make the deal permanent this time next year for £5.5 million.
Southampton would be relieved of Osvaldo's wages which Inter would pay. Osvaldo would reportedly receive just under £1.6 million plus bonuses per season.
If the deal were to become permanent in 2015, Southampton would be accepting a massive loss having paid just under £13 million for the 28-year-old in August 2013.
