Inter are hoping to close out the deal for Fluminense forward Marcos Paulo over the next few weeks, according to a report from today’s paper edition of the Turin based newspaper Tuttosport.
The report details how the 19-year-old Brazilian forward’s contract expires with Fluminense at the end of the season, making him a low cost option for the Nerazzurri.
The Brazilian side do not want to lose the talented teenager and are hoping to tie him down with a new contract, but it is clear that the player is hoping to move to Europe.
Marcos Paulo holds a Portuguese passport and so would be registered as an EU player, an important factor for the Milanese club.
Inter have been in close contact with the Brazilian teenager’s entourage over the last month and want to close out the deal for him over the next few weeks, before the end of next month.
Marcos Paulo has scored five goals and provided five assists in 34 appearances this season.
