Cagliari are in talks to sign Paulo Vitor de Souza Barreto from Udinese, the Sardinian club have confirmed.
"Everything is OK with Udinese," Rossoblu President Massimo Cellino noted. "Now we'll speak to the player's agent."
Barreto returned to Udine this summer after spending the last three seasons at Bari where he scored 41 goals in 77 League games.
The Brazilian had an injury hit last campaign though and only made 13 appearances in the top flight as Bari were relegated.
The South American forward, who celebrates his 26th birthday today, was close to joining Fiorentina last January.
