Barcelona have an agreement with Groningen to sign 18-year-old midfielder Ludovit Reis, according to the player’s agent Aleksandar Bursac.
The teenager will apparently head to Spain shortly to finalise the deal and also show manager Ernesto Valverde what he can do.
“The clubs have made an agreement,” he said. ”I don’t say what the amount is, it’s not up to me. For Ludovit this is of course very beautiful. A top transfer. This weekend or on Monday we will hear when we can fly to Barcelona to complete the transfer.
”We want the head coach [Ernesto Valverde] to see Ludovit in training, so he will get an impression of what he can do and if he is able to reach the level of Barcelona.”
The club’s CEO Hans Nijland has previously admitted the two clubs were in negotiations for the youngster, and it now seems as though he is on his way to the Camp Nou.
