Flamengo have agreed to sell highly rated striker Felipe Vizeu to Italian football club Udinese, according to widespread media reports in Brazil.
The Italian club will pay $6.5 million to secure the 20-year-old on a five-year deal, the Globo newspaper said on Tuesday, reports Xinhua news agency.
The 20-year-old will fly to Italy to sign a contract this week but is only likely to join the Udinese squad in July, it added.
Vizeu, who scored four goals in eight matches for Brazil's under-20 team last year, has netted 17 times in 65 first-team appearances for Flamengo since 2016.
He will join compatriots Danilo and Samir in Udinese's first-team squad.
