Palmeiras starlet Keirrison looks set for a summer move to Barcelona with contract talks nearing a conclusion.

Reports in Spain have claimed that Barça have reached an initial agreement with Traffic Sports Marketing, which controls the player's transfer rights, to sign the 20-year-old in the summer. The player's contract is owned by Palmeiras (20%) and Traffic (80%).

Delighted with the prospect of a move to the Camp Nou, Keirrison revealed his childhood dream of playing for the Catalans.

"I would really like to play alongside Lionel Messi," he told Sport. "He is the best player in the world.

"Since I was very young I have wanted to play in a country and with a great club and, while I have nothing against any others, I have always identified with Barcelona.

"I have seen a lot of games when Romário and Ronaldo were there and that made me dream that one day I would play in a great club like Barcelona."
