Barcelona and Juventus come to an agreement over a swap deal involving midfielders Arthur and Miralem Pjanic, according to a report.

Barcelona and Juventus have reportedly finally come to an agreement over a swap deal involving midfielders Arthur and Miralem Pjanic.

The speculation surrounding the potential deal has gathered pace in recent days, with Arthur allegedly signalling that he is prepared to move to Turin, having initially been reluctant to depart Camp Nou.

The Brazilian had reportedly been holding out for a more lucrative contract from the Italian champions, but according to The Guardian, an agreement between all parties has now been reached.

The report claims that Juve will pay €10m (£9m) plus Pjanic for Arthur, who is set to sign a five-year contract with Maurizio Sarri's side when he makes the move ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.

Pjanic, meanwhile, has allegedly been offered a deal at Barca until the summer of 2024, with the Spanish champions identifying the 30-year-old as the ideal player to boost their midfield.

Both clubs are still in the Champions League, though, and it is understood that the proposed swap will not take place until the completion of the European competition.
