The full back is set to be added to the Inter ranks ahead of Sunday's transfer deadline after a deal was thrashed out by the respective clubs' powerbrokers at the Champions League draw in Monte Carlo on Thursday.
Brechet's impending arrival at Giuseppe Meazza will end coach Hector Cuper's search for defensive reinforcements.
The 24-year-old played against Inter in last season's Champions League for Lyon and will link up with compatriots Stephane Dalmat and Sabri Lamouchi in Milan.
The left back has spent his entire career with the French champions and has collected three full caps for Les Bleus.
Inter hope to wrap up the capture of Brechet on Friday with only a few minor details to be resolved before they can unveil the Gallic ace.
Premiership giants Liverpool have previously been admirers of Brechet while Paris Saint Germain had been looking at the player to fill their left back vacancy.
But Inter have moved swiftly to snare the Frenchman, who perceives his long-term future to be at the heart of the defence.
