The Nerazzurri have been locked in talks with the Bundesliga giants for some time after identifying Sommers as the first-choice replacement for Andre Onana.
A verbal agreement with the Swiss goalkeeper is in place, but Inter are yet to find common ground with Bayern over the transfer fee.
Inter are optimistic about getting the green light from the Bundesliga champions, and a deal could be agreed for around €5 million.
Sky Sport Italia reports that the Nerazzurri are set for a final round of talks with Bayern this weekend to wrap up the deal for the former Borussia Monchengladbach star.
Sommer, who has been on Inter’s radar since January, has told Bayern that he wants to move to the San Siro just six months after joining the Bavarians.
The 34-year-old was signed as a stop-gap signing for injured Manuel Neuer and is aware that the German shot-stopper will retain the starting spot once he completes his recovery.
The Bavarians have also prepared for Sommer’s departure, as their interest in David Raya and Wojciech Szczesny suggests.
With Inter also losing Samir Handanovic and Alex Cordaz, the Nerazzurri are looking to sign another goalkeeper.
The Nerazzurri have handpicked Ukraine U21 keeper Anatoliy Trubin as the potential understudy to Sommer.
However, the negotiations with Shakhtar Donetsk haven’t produced any significant developments, with Inter now considering other possibilities.
