Abner Vinícius set to join Real Betis

Real Betis have reached an agreement with Athletico Paranaense to sign Abner Vinícius, reports Fabrizio Romano.

The Andaluz club have been in the market to find a new left-back following the departure of Álex Moreno to Aston Villa earlier this week.

It appears as though Los Verdiblancos have found their man and they have already agreed a deal to sign Abner Vinícius from Athletico Paranaense. According to the agreement, Real Betis will pay €7m to secure the services of the Brazilian, which could rise to a higher fee with add-ons.

Abner Vinícius is expected to sign a long-term contract, and is set to fly to Spain to finalise the deal. Athletico Paranaense are to keep 30% of a future sale fee.

This will be the 22-year-old’s first European club and he will be most likely battling it out with Juan Miranda to decide who will be Real Betis’ starting right-back.
