Cameroon captain Samuel Eto'o will complete a big-money move to Anzhi Makhachkala this week, according to Italian press.
The protracted transfer saga between Inter Milan and the Russians is due to be tied up with a fee of around 20-30 million euros being agreed and Eto'o signing a deal worth 15-20 million euros a season.
Italian press say Eto'o will undergo a medical at a clinic in Rome on Thursday with the official announcement of his signing set for Friday.
However, the 30-year-old trained with Inter on Tuesday as Italian media reported that the two clubs are still thrashing out an agreement. Eto'o is the most decorated player in African history.
