The left-sided winger had been targeted by the Premier League club, but was never particularly enthused by the idea of joining Newcastle, who are struggling against relegation.
Once Inter made a formal approach last night, as reported by Sportitalia pundit Alfredo Pedullà, the situation developed rapidly and the 27-year-old agreed personal terms.
It’s reported this is a contract worth €2.5m per season plus bonuses, so considerably less than the €3.5m per year salary offered by Newcastle.
Atalanta had also wanted €30m for Gosens, but Sportitalia, Gazzetta dello Sport and more claim this afternoon a deal will eventually be struck for €22m plus bonuses to reach €25m.
It’ll be an initial paid loan to the end of the season with obligation to buy based on certain conditions being met.
Sky Sport Italia maintain Gosens’ agents are already in Milan and hope to finalise the deal tomorrow.
As Gosens is currently injured and has missed most of the season with this thigh issue, he is an investment for the future rather than the current campaign.
It means Ivan Perisic will probably not extend his contract and can leave San Siro as a free agent in July.
