Italian club Udinese are set to complete the imminent signing of FC Cincinnati’s Brazilian forward Brenner for $10m.
The 23-year-old will join Udinese on 1 July after his 18 goals in the MLS last season proved enough to convince Andrea Sottil’s side to make a move on the Cincy number-nine who joined the club for a club-record $13m, according to journalist Fabrizio Romano.
Udinese will complete Brenner deal from Cincinnati FC in the next days. Agreement described as imminent, $10m proposal on the table with final details being discussed. Personal terms agreed. ⚪️🇧🇷 #transfers
