Latest transfer reports suggest that Barcelona have finally agreed to a deal to sign Santos playmaker Lucas Lima in January.

The 26-year-old will be finishing his current contract with his Brazilian club in December before he will complete his switch to the Camp Nou when the winter transfer window reopens.

As reported in several media outlets in Brazil, Lima is said to have agreed to a four-year deal with the Catalan giants and will officially sign his contract on July 1.

The report goes on to claim that Lima was signed on the recommendation of Neymar, whose father is Lima's agent at Santos.

Lima has been at Santos since 2014 and has won 14 caps for the Brazilian national team, scoring two goals.
