Internazionale, one of the few big clubs in Italy involved in the wide-reaching match-fixing scandal, is said to be closing in on Fiorentina striker Luca Toni. The club has been in pursuit of Serie A's top scorer since the end of last season.

Ibrahimovic is said to be worth around $20 million. Read the original story...
