Gianluca Lapadula has undergone a medical with AC Milan as he closes in on a move to San Siro from Pescara.
The 26-year-old forward scored 30 goals as Pescara secured promotion to Serie A last season, attracting attention from the likes of Juventus, Napoli and Leicester City.
However, Lapadula arrived at La Madonnina clinic on Friday and now on the brink of making a switch to Milan - something he feels will benefit both clubs.
The striker's transfer fee is reported to be worth an initial €9million, rising to €10m.
"It's something that we both wanted. I am very happy, I thank president [Silvio] Berlusconi and [chief executive Adriano] Galliani," Lapadula told Milan's official website.
"I thank Pescara. It was a deal that happened in a flash, strongly desired by both sides, and rightly so.
"It's going to be a super busy week. For now we will do what we must do here in Milan, then I will be concentrating on my wedding."
Lapadula's impending arrival raises further questions over the future of Milan forward Carlos Bacca, who has been linked with a move away from San Siro.
