Report: Internacional forward Ignacio Scocco set to sign for Sunderland
Internacional forward Ignacio Scocco is set to sign for Sunderland, according to reports.
Roker Report claims that a deal is likely to be announced in the next few days, with a fee of around £4 million believed to have been agreed.
Internacional will reportedly have to immediately pay £1.5 million of that to Newell’s Old Boys, who they still owe from the deal that brought the 28 year-old to Brazil in July.
Scocco has been looking to leave Inter this month after failing to settle in Porto Alegre. The striker netted just three goals in 17 appearances as Abel Braga’s side closed out the 2013 season flirting with relegation.
