Pierre Webo is set to join Real Mallorca after being persuaded to try his luck at the Ono Estadi by compatriot Daniel Kome.
The Cameroonian forward left Osasuna at the end of last season after four successful years at the Reyno de Navarra and has been searching for a new club.
Webo is now expected to put pen-to-paper on a deal with Mallorca as soon as he passes a medical.
Negotiations between player and club were set to remain deadlocked until Webo sought the advice of Kome.
"I talked to Webo and he asked me a lot of questions about Real Mallorca," Kome told Marca.
"I told him that the atmosphere in the dressing room is great, where everyone gets on and that the directors are all very friendly.
"They have always treated me very well."
Kome expects Webo to make a big impact at Mallorca and is looking forward to his arrival.
He commented: "He is a player who will bring a great deal to the side. I really do think he will be a success.
"I know him well because we are from the same area of Cameroon."
Webo will fill the void in the Mallorca strikeforce left by the departures of Maxi Lopez, Diego Tristan and Bosko Jankovic.
