The 21-year-old striker is set to move in a co-ownership deal for a €10million (£8.5million) fee, while Antonio Cassano should switch the other way on loan.

But Moratti has denied speculation of an offer from a Russian club for defender Andrea Ranocchia or a bid from Barcelona for keeper Samir Handanovic.

Moratti told the club's official website: "Belfodil? What the newspapers are saying is more or less the truth.

"(An) offer from Russia for Andrea Ranocchia? It doesn't seem so to me. Bids for Handanovic (from Barcelona)? No. Nothing for now".

Handanovic's agent Federico Pastorello has also denied speculation linking the 28-year-old to the Catalans.

He told Radio Rai: "Samir is an anchorage for Inter and I deny the negotiations written in the newspapers.

"In football, anything can happen but I think there won't be news.

"Barcelona's offer? It doesn't seem so to me. There was an idea it was doubly intertwined with the move of Victor Valdes, who seemed directed to Monaco."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
