The rising Brazilian star Lucas Paqueta seems to be on his way to Milan. The 21-year-old Flamengo midfielder is reported to have reached an agreement with the club about the transfer in January.

Paqueta, who is seen as one of the biggest talents in Brazil, was chased by a few other big teams such as Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain. However, he was persuaded to move to Italy by Milan's general manager Leonardo, who is a Brazilian.

In September, Paqueta made his debut for Brazil national team, coming on as substitute in the friendly matches against El Salvador and the USA.
