Botafogo midfielder Jadson set to sign for Udinese - reports
Botafogo midfielder Jadson is reportedly on the verge of signing for Serie A outfit Udinese.
The Rio de Janeiro club are said to have agreed in principle to sell the 19-year-old for €2.5 million, according to Lancenet.
However, despite the imminent deal, Jadson will not be able to join the Bianconeri until the summer transfer window opens in Europe.
Jadson, who came through Botafogo’s youth system, was a member of Brazil’s squad during their disappointing South American Under-20 Championships campaign in January.
The reported deal would be Botafogo’s second sale this week after left-back Marcio Azevedo signed for Ukrainian outfit Metalist for a reported €3 million.
