Highly-rated Brazilian star Lucas Paqueta is said to be on his way to AC Milan.
The 21-year-old talent has been making a positive impression in Brazil this season, scoring nine goals and creating further four in 31 appearances across all competitions with Flamengo.
His rich vein of form has alarmed plenty of high-profile clubs from Europe with the likes of Liverpool, Manchester United and PSG all said to be interested in acquiring his services.
The latest reports from Brazil, however, claim that AC Milan have reached an agreement with Flamengo over a January transfer for the rising star.
Rossoneri have beaten competition to the signature of Paqueta with Globoesporte reporting that sporting director Leonardo has personally convinced both the midfielder and his club that the Serie A would be the best choice for his development.
Widely considered to be one of the top talents across Brazil, Lucas Paqueta would not come cheap and it is believed that AC Milan will be forced to fork out around €35 million plus bonuses to get their man in January.
