Juventus striker Mirko Vucinic was spotted at a hotel in Milan late last night preparing to undergo a medical ahead of a Serie A switch to Inter which is expected to see Fredy Guarin go the other way, according to Sky Sport Italia.
Vucinic has been persistently linked with a switch to the Premier League with either Arsenal or Manchester United throughout January, with first-team opportunities at Juve restricted by the formidable starting strike duo of Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente.
The Gunners and United have failed to register a formal bid for the Montenegro international though, despite the forward's desire to find a new club.
Inter Milan have stolen a march on the Premier League duo and offered up another top English target in exchange for Vucinic, with Guarin put forward as a player the Turin giants can take in exchange.
Nerazzurri fans launched an angry protest at the proposed deal last night, which they see as strengthening a fierce rival, but both Vucinic is desperate to force through a move and is thought to have persuaded Inter that they should press ahead with the shock swap of the January window so far.
The 30-year-old was spotted at a hotel Inter regularly use for player negotiations and medicals on Monday night, with a further announcement on the Serie A switch due later today.
