Heikki Kovalainen is poised to return to formula one, according to the major Finnish newspaper Ilta Sanomat.
Caterham team owner Tony Fernandes admitted recently that Kovalainen's Lotus struggle "played a part" in the decision to sign Kamui Kobayashi instead.
Kovalainen is yet to comment on his 2014 plans, but Ilta Sanomat reports that the Mercedes deal has been on the table for some time, with contracts now ready to be signed.
