Barcelona has reached an agreement to sign Moussa Wague from Belgian side KAS Eupen, according to the official site.
However, the fee hasnâ€™t been revealed and he is yet to sign the contract, but that will be done in the next few days. He has completed his medical, though, so there wonâ€™t be any issues in that area and itâ€™s just the formality of the transfer that is left.

The announcement came through the Barcelona B Twitter account, so he will be part of that team at the start, but he could graduate into the senior squad.
Wague is relatively inexperienced at the senior level because he only played 23 league and cup matches for Eupen as well as 17 Europa League qualifying games. Although he did impress with Senegal at the World Cup.
He played in all three games for Les Lions de la TÃ©ranga and even scored in the 2-2 draw with Japan, but his team ended up coming third due to the fair play tiebreaker.
