Barcelona are close to announcing their third signing of the transfer window that will leave one Italian side fuming.
Bordeaux winger Malcom, who had previously been linked with moves to Everton and Leicester this summer, was all set to depart Bordeaux after Roma agreed a fee with the French club.
The Serie A side had agreed a €36m (£32m) deal with Bordeaux but it appears Barcelona have gazumped Roma with their own offer of €41m (£36.5m) plus add ons.
L’Equipe now claim Malcom has told his team-mates he is set to join the La Liga champions and is undergoing a medical with the club this afternoon.
They say the 21-year-old will put pen to paper on a five-year deal.
