Serie A - Eto'o close to Anzhi deal

The Russian club have offered in the region of 30 million euros for the Cameroon international and are reported to be ready to pay Eto'o an eye-watering 17m per season.

Though it was initially thought that a player who scored 34 goals in all competitions last season for Inter, and won the trble in 2010, would shun a move to Russia, the move is looking increasingly likely.

Eto'o's agent, Claudio Vigorelli, says the striker is close to coming to a deal with the Russian side.

"We have practically reached an agreement with Anzhi," Vigorelli told Sports.ru. "Hopefully, the clubs will now also agree between themselves.

"Unfortunately, the media have been reporting false figures in relation to Samuel’s contract.

"But I will repeat, we have practically agreed things with Anzhi."

Inter president Massimo Moratti has hinted that Inter are prepared to accept the offer on the table from Anzhi.

"The offer can be described as interesting, intelligent and reasonable to the value of the player," Moratti told the club's official website.

"It is not up to me to judge whether it is indecent or not, but I can say that it is intelligent and values our player. Over the next few days we will assess it along with Eto'o and our directors."
