Udinese have completed the signing of São Paulo midfielder Lucas Evangelista.
The 19 year-old, who was part owned by Desportivo Brasil, is believed to have cost Udinese around €4 million.
Evangelista had been linked with a move to Hellas Verona for much of the summer and Udinese interest came as something of a surprise.
What the Serie A club will now do with the Brazilian currently remains unclear. Initial reports had suggested that he could be moved on to feeder clubs Granada or Watford, though Evangelista is understood to prefer to stay at Udinese.
