Milos Krasic's agent admits his client is set to seal a switch to Italy, with Inter Milan leading the hunt.
Premier League giants Manchester United and Manchester City were both believed to be keen on the CSKA Moscow winger, while Chelsea have been linked with a move in the past.
However, it appears as though a move to England is now out of the question, with the Serbia international edging towards a shot at Serie A.
Juventus were strong favourites to seal his signature at one stage, but they have since been usurped by rivals Inter.
New Nerazzurri boss Rafa Benitez is known to be a long-time admirer of Krasic and he has wasted no time in putting a deal in place since taking the reins at Giuseppe Meazza.
"Rafa wanted Milos when he was at Liverpool and now he is at Inter they have made a written offer," said Krasic's agent Dejan Joksimovic.
"We have been in negotiations with Juventus as well, but Inter are coming to Moscow to speak to his club about him in the next few days.
"There was interest from the top clubs in England, but they weren't quick enough.
"It is almost 100 per cent Milos will be going to Italy."
