Brazilian defender Felipe Mattioni is close to joining AC Milan, according to the player's agent.
Mattioni has been a target of several Italian clubs but the Rossoneri look set to beat Juventus and acquire the 20-year-old full-back from Gremio.
"Felipe is already in Italy and will undergo a medical tomorrow," said Mattioni's agent Mino Raiola.
"He has signed a four-and-a-half-year contract.
"He has Italian citizenship and can play immediately."
AC Milan are desperate to strengthen their defensive line with defenders Alessandro Nesta and Kakha Kaladze sidelined with injury.
