Internazionale will meet with Samuel Eto'o's agent, Jose Maria Mesalles, to discuss personal terms for the player on Tuesday.

Eto'o is widely expected to complete a switch to the San Siro with Zlatan Ibrahimovic heading in the other direction.

Inter and Barcelona have reportedly reached agreements for the transfers of both players.

A fee of 48million euros is rumoured to be on its way to the Nerazzurri along with the Cameroon striker.

"We will meet with Eto'o's agent on Tuesday. There is a negotiation in place," Inter's director, Marco Branca, told Sky Sport Italia. "Will Ibrahimovic go to Barcelona? Ask Laporta."

Meanwhile, Juventus striker David Trezeguet could sign for Serie A rivals AS Roma this summer, according to his agent.

Juve are thought to be ready to part company with the France international and he could replace Mirko Vucinic, who is set to be sold by Roma.

"Roma are still interested in Trezeguet and that is normal," the player's agent, Antonio Caliendo, told Romagiallorossa.com. "If Roma are looking for a striker, and if Juve allow him to leave, then the chances of him joining the Lupi are there."

Roma are suffering from financial difficulties and cashing in on Vucinic may be a necessity.

"I have not heard anything official from Juventus, but I have spoken to (Roma director) Daniele Prade about many things," added Caliendo.

But the agent also hinted that Trezeguet's wage demands may be out of Roma's reach.

"The problem is that Roma need to balance their accounts and thus they are moving with caution," he added.

Juventus have confirmed that they are interested in signing Barcelona defender Martin Caceres on a season-long loan deal.

The 22-year-old Uruguayan joined Barca a year ago from Villarreal, but made just ten starts for the Spanish and European champions last term.

Juve's club administrator, Jean-Claude Blanc, told Corriere dello Sport: "We are evaluating the possibility to acquire on loan defender Juan Martin Caceres from Barcelona.

"He is a great player, young, strong and determined. He would be useful to complete our roster."
