FC Barcelona and Nelson Semedo have agreed a deal that will see right-back move to the Nou Camp this summer.

The Portuguese international will become Barcelona's latest signing in the next few hours, with the club currently negotiating with Benfica to close the deal.

The defender will join the club on a 5-year deal, costing €30 million plus €5 million in add-ons.

Barcelona representatives have been in Lisbon all day trying to finalise a deal for Semedo, who will join Gerard Delefeu as 'new' arrivals at the Camp Nou this summer.

The move comes as a result of Arsenal's refusal to allow Hector Bellerin to rejoin his childhood club, having joined Arsenal from La Masia when he was 16.

Semedo, 23, has been a Portuguese international since 2016 and has won the Portuguese league twice with Benfica.

With Manchester City, who were also in for the right-back, finally agreeing a fee with Tottenham for English international Kyle Walker, Barcelona have been able to swoop on Semedo.

Ladbrokes, in particular, have suspended betting on Kyle Walker joining Man City.

The bookies were as short as 1/5 this morning before taking the market down altogether after reports claimed City and Tottenham Hostpur have agreed on a fee for the defender.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: "After slashing the odds to 1/5 earlier this week following Dani Alves' move to PSG, we've decided to close the book on Walker joining City as Pep Guardiola's spending spree continues."
