Copa Libertadores winner appears to be on the verge of a move to the Ukraine...
Young attacker Taison appears to be on his way out of Brazilian side Internacional after Ukrainian outfit Metalist Kharkiv have expressed an interest in signing the versatile forward, according to a report in Globoesporte.

The Ukrainians are looking to build a new team in order to battle it out for the domestic league title with the traditional title candidates Shakhtar Donetsk and Dynamo Kiev and they supposedly see Taison as a key player in their plans for the future.

The 22-year-old attacker has developed into one of the star players at Internacional and has made well over 100 official appearances for the Brazilian side. He played an important role in his side's Copa Libertadores triumph.

Taison was previously linked with a move to Bundesliga side Wolfsburg, but now appears to be on his way to Kharkiv instead. The Ukrainian side have reportedly already agreed terms with Internacional about a transfer fee of €6 million. Taison is expected to sign a five-year deal with his new club in the upcoming days.
