Zenit agree €20m fee for Sporting midfielder Wendel

Zenit Saint Petersburg have agreed a €20m fee with Sporting CP for central midfielder Wendel.

According to reports, a deal was struck late on Friday for the Brazilian to join Russian champions Zenit.

23-year-old Wendel will sign a five-year contract with his Zenit medical scheduled for Monday.

Sporting signed Wendel from Fluminense for around €9m at the start of 2018.

His performances led to him being followed by Napoli, while CSKA Moscow tried to sign him last season.

The Brazil under-23 international has been one of the few highlights in Sporting’s side recently.

Wendel has played 79 games in all competitions for Sporting, scoring six goals.
