MADRID, July 16 -- Spanish champions Barcelona agreed a 9.5 million-euro deal with Sevilla to sign Brazilian player Adriano, the club said on Friday.

The 25-year-old, who can play at full-back or as a wide midfielder, will cost an initial fee of 9.5 million euros and a conditional four million extra depending on his performances.

Adriano has been at Sevilla since 2004, twice tasting success in both the King's Cup (2007, 2010) and the UEFA Cup (2006, 2007).

He would become the first player to move to Barcelona since the arrival of new club president Sandro Rosell at the beginning of July.

Barca have already completed the signing of Spanish international striker David Villa, who arrived from Valencia for a fee close to 40 million euros.
