But, as per the report from Goal, it seems that Inter have taken the first major step in sealing the starlet’s signature as they said the Serie A club have agreed personal terms with the player.

As reported by the Metro, Arsenal and Tottenham have also been linked with the Brazilian star in the past – however Liverpool were the leading English club to sign him.

Goal state the Italian giants have offered €40 million for the player, however, Bordeaux are holding around €10m more to let their prized asset go.
