Zenit complete €20.3m signing of Wendel from Sporting

Zenit have confirmed the signing of Sporting CP midfielder Wendel for an initial €20.3m.

Sporting could also receive a further €4m in add-ons, potentially making it a €24.3m deal.

Wendel, 23, was on the radar of Monaco and Napoli during the transfer window, but his future is with the Russian champions.

The Brazil under-23 international has signed a five-year contract with Zenit.

Formerly of Fluminense, Wendel made the jump to Europe with Sporting in January 2018 after being linked with PSG.

During his time at the Lisbon club, Wendel scored six goals and registered eight assists in  79 appearances.
