Feyenoord are set to sign 22-year-old Brazilian winger Igor Paixão from Coritiba on a five-year deal.
The Rotterdam club have had an extremely busy transfer window, making 10 signings and losing a number of players to other clubs.
The majority of those signings have been in the forward areas, and that trend looks set to continue with Paixão close to joining the club.
1908.nl have reported that they have received confirmation from the player’s agent that he will join the club on a deal that lasts until 2027.
It’s a signing that will be sure to excite Feyenoord fans, with the winger scoring 10 goals in 26 appearances in Brazil last year and attracting interest from a number of European clubs.
How much he will cost is not yet clear, but given the asking price reportedly was initially too high for Feyenoord, it’s unlikely to be a cheap signing.
