Barcelona are closing on an agreement with Braga for the transfer of 20-year-old attacker Francisco Trincao, according to a report.

Barcelona are reportedly closing in on an agreement with Braga for the transfer of Francisco Trincao.

The Spanish champions will allegedly not be bringing a new striker to the club during the January transfer window despite being linked with a number of players throughout the month.

However, according to Marca, plans are already underway for the summer, and the Catalan giants are nearing a €30m (£25m) agreement with Braga for Trincao.

The report claims that Quique Setien's side are set to beat a number of European clubs to the attacker's signature, and he is expected to sign a five-year contract upon his arrival at the end of the 2019-20 campaign.

The 20-year-old has already made 22 appearances for Braga during the current season, scoring three times and contributing six assists in the process.

Trincao, who has largely played as a right winger this term, also helped Portugal's Under-19 side win the Under-19 European Championships in 2018.
