Report: Internazionale lead Liverpool in race to sign Cruzeiro midfielder Nilton
Internazionale are closing in on a deal for Cruzeiro midfielder Nilton, according to reports.
Tuttosport claims that the Nerazzurri have targeted the Barra do Garças native as a replacement for veteran Esteban Cambiasso, who is expected to move to Major League Soccer in the summer.
Liverpool and Valencia are also believed to be interested in Nilton, but Tuttosport suggests Inter are the favourites to secure his signature and claims a deal could be agreed for around £3.5 million.
Nilton, 26, joined Cruzeiro from Vasco da Gama in 2013. Last season, he scored seven goals in 30 appearances, as they won the Brasileirão.
