Paulista midfielder Raphael Martinho is set to become Catania's first transfer acquisition once the transfer market opens in the coming weeks.
The Rossazzurri are seeking reinforcements after a disappointing season in the league, which has seen them hover in the lower half of the table for most of the term.
The 22-year-old 'confirmed' the news that he was going to the Sicilian club, after posting on his Facebook page: "Catania, I am coming", according to Itasportpress.it.
No official announcement has been made from the club, confirming the arrival of the player.
