Barcelona have confirmed they have agreed a deal with Gremio for midfielder Arthur.

The two clubs have agreed a purchase option which Barcelona can exercise in July of this year for €30 million plus €9m in variables.

Rumours surrounding a move for Arthur have been flying around for some months now but it appears that Barcelona have finally got their man and for less than his €50m release clause.

It had been expected that Arthur would stay with Gremio for the rest of the year and not arrive at Camp Nou until January 2019, but it appears that he could arrive in the summer.

Welcome to Barcelona Arthur!
