Juventus have reached an agreement to sign Barcelona midfielder Arthur at the end of the season.

The Brazil international will join Juve for 72m euros (£66m) – with 10m (£9m) in add-ons.

The 23-year-old, who joined Barcelona from Gremio on a six-year contract in 2018, has made 72 appearances for the Spanish champions.

Juve’s 30-year-old Bosnia midfielder Miralem Pjanic will move in the opposite direction on a five-year deal.

Pjanic will join Barcelona for 60m euros (£54.9m), with a further 5m (£4.6m) in add-ons.

Juve are four points clear at the top of Serie A as they chase a ninth consecutive title.
