Norwich City are set to sign young Brazilian defender Thalisson Gabriel ahead of next season.
That is according to ge.globo, a Brazilian outlet, who report that Coritiba have agreed to sell their young defender to the English side, with a partnership between the two sides having been established earlier this year.
In the report there are no fees are mentioned, but the potential sale of the 20-year-old is understood to be a permanent transfer.
According to a seperate report in the Eastern Daily Press, Brazilian journalist Rogerio Scarione has been reported to have indicated that a transfer fee in the region of £600-700K has been agreed for the player.
Thalisson has played just three senior matches for Coritiba, with this deal taking advantage of a club partnership established between Norwich City and Coritiba six months ago.
At the time, Canaries Sporting Director Stuart Webber said: “We are delighted to have partnered with Coritiba. This new and exciting relationship will allow us to further continue our development and reach into new territories.
“When Brexit was on the horizon, we started a project to increase our knowledge in South America, as we felt the rules would open that market somewhat.
“This exciting project has led us to an official partnership with Coritiba, which will be mutually beneficial for both clubs over the coming weeks, months and years.
“Mariela Nisotaki and our scouting team in South America deserve a lot of credit for the work done so far. I am sure both football clubs will feel the benefit of this exciting partnership.”
