Araujo will put pen to paper on his deal on Friday and will then speak at a press conference along with president Joan Laporta.
The defender joined Barcelona B from Uruguayan side Boston River in 2018 for a fee of just €1.7 million (£1.43 million) plus add-ons.
Araujo has gone on to become a regular in the first team and is now a key player under Xavi.
The defender joins Ansu Fati and Pedri in committing his future to Barcelona with 17-year-old midfielder Gavi expected to follow suit shortly.
