Sporting Lisbon have beaten off competition from a host of European rivals by signing highly rated Brazilian midfielder Wendel, according to widespread media reports.

The Portuguese outfit agreed to pay Rio de Janeiro's Fluminense nine million euros to secure the 20-year-old on a six-year deal, Brazil's Globo newspaper said on Friday.

It added that Paris Saint-Germain, Porto and CSKA Moscow had also shown interest in the playmaker.

Wendel played 58 matches and scored seven goals for Fluminense in 2017 after being promoted from the club's youth ranks.

He will reportedly earn 600,000 euros a year plus performances bonuses.
