Paulo (Brazil), July 22 IANS | 3 months ago

Brazilian club Palmeiras has agreed to sign teenage Argentine playmaker Agustin Allione from Velez Sarsfield.


The 19-year-old is expected to undergo a medical with the eight-time Brazilian champions later this week, reports Xinhua.

"Everything has been agreed to," Allione told Globoesporte.

"It looks like I will travel there on Thursday."

Allione's signing came at the behest of former Velez coach Ricardo Gareca, who took charge of Palmeiras in May.

The attacking midfielder will be the third Argentine in Palmeiras' squad, joining Fernando Tobio and Pablo Mouche.

"I'm really happy to be given this opportunity but also sad because I'm leaving a club that has given me everything," Allione said.

Palmeiras are currently 12th in Brazil's Serie A championship standings with 13 points from 11 matches.

The Sao Paulo club returned to Brazil's top-flight in December having been relegated 12 months earlier for only the second time in their history.
