Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi is set to make his move to Paris Saint-Germain permanent after a deal worth £51.2m was agreed with his club, according to Sky Italy.
The French champions have already agreed to pay a fee of £45m with £6.2m in add-ons to sign the Argentina international.
There was a race against time for the transfer move to be completed with PSG’s option to buy expiring on Sunday May 31, after his loan move to the Feench side on September 2.
The forward was left out of Inter Milan’s team upon Antonio Conte’s arrival last summer but he has impressed greatly in France.
Icardi has scored 20 goals in 31 games in all competitions this campaign before Ligue 1 was called off in April, due to the coronavirus crisis.
However, His debut campaign may not have finished yet with a plan for the Champions League, Coupe de France and Coupe de la Ligue to all be concluded.

The Inter Milan sporting director, Piero Ausilio, said on Friday: “Icardi wants to stay at PSG and we are in talks to make that happen.”
Icardi signed for Inter in 2013 and was the joint top scorer in Serie A in 2015 with Luca Toni on 22 goals but he later fell out with the club and supporters and it was unlikely he would return to the club after moving to PSG on loan last year.
Ausilio also confirmed he expected Alexis Sánchez, who is on loan from Manchester United, to stay for the rest of the campaign and “show what he can do.”
