Manager Charlie Christie has struck a deal to bring Nicuale to Inverness on a two-year contract, although he must first be granted a work permit.
The 26-year-old reportedly attracted the attention of several clubs after being released by German club Mainz at the end of last season.
And Christie is delighted to have won the race for Niculae's signature.
He enthused: "This is a big signing for us. Marius played in the Bundesliga last season and his final game for Mainz was against Bayern Munich so he clearly has the quality.
"We look forward to being able to work on his fitness and blending him in to the squad as soon as possible."
Inverness chairman Alan savage added: "It is a rare opportunity to land an international player who was a free agent, thus involving no transfer fee, and the club directors were very keen to help the manager strengthen for the new SPL campaign."
