Zenit St Petersburg are set to announce the signing of Barcelona winger Malcom, after the two clubs agreed a fee believed to be in the region of €40 million (£36.5m/$44.5m), plus €5 million (£4.6m/$5.6m) in add-ons.
The La Liga champions fought off strong competition from Roma to sign the former Bordeaux star for €41 million just over a year ago.
But having made just 24 appearances in all competitions for Ernesto Valverde’s side last season, the Brazilian is already on his way out of Camp Nou.
Malcom will earn around €6.5 million per season in Russia, whilst it is also understood that Barcelona will not have a buyback option on the deal, which is expected to be made official on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, Rafinha Alcantara continues to attract interest from sides across Europe and could also be on his way out of Barcelona in the near future.
