Barcelona secures option to sign Brazilian midfielder Arthur

The Brazilian, 21, has been a long-term target for the Catalans following an impressive Copa Libertadores campaign last term.

Since breaking into their first-team in 2016, Arthur has established himself as one of the finest young midfielders in South American football.

Arthur's arrival means that Barcelona exceed the permitted number of non-EU players and so they must now accelerate the process of nacionalización de Philippe Coutinho, who is hoping to gain duel Brazilian-Portuguese citizenship this summer through his spouse.
