Gleison Bremer has confirmed he is set to leave Torino amid reports Inter are among the clubs trying to sign him.
The Serie A Defender of the Year is keen to play in the Champions League.
And push for an international call-up with Brazil ahead of the World Cup in Qatar later this year.
Bremer has admitted he first expressed his desire for a transfer last year before being persuaded to remain for another season, but now says it is only a “matter of time” being he moves.
He told ESPN:
“I told the coach and the management ‘I want to change now.’
“So they told me: ‘Stay this year, help us. Next year, you can take the next step’.
“The fans already know that I have this desire to play in the Champions League, to go there to earn a call-up to the Brazilian national team.
“I need to play at a much better level, so I think it’s a matter of time.
“I’m analysing some proposals but I think that next season I will no longer play for Torino.”
Inter are widely regarded to be leading the hunt for the 25-year-old’s services.
But city rivals Milan along with Premier League clubs Tottenham are also said to be keen to land him.
Bremer could be a direct replacement for Inter defender Milan Skriniar.
As it looks like Skriniar is heavily touted for a move to Paris Saint-Germain.
Inter are set for a busy window as they seek to regain the Scudetto from Milan, with the free transfer of Paulo Dybala from Juventus, thought to be imminent and Chelsea’s Romelu Lukaku a prime target.
Bremer is one of the best defenders in Serie- A last season.
He is a perfect combination of size and speed which attract many European elites.
And Bremer can replace Milan Skriniar without any hesitation.
