Al-Hilal would pay 60 million euros (66.38 million USD) for the acquisition, according to RIA Novosti, which reported the financial details last week, according to Zenit CEO Alexandr Medvedev.
After Senegal defender Kalidou Koulibaly, Serbia midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, and Portuguese midfielder Ruben Neves, the 26-year-old is Al-Hilal's fourth signing of the summer.
The Brazilian winger, who moved to Zenit from Barcelona in 2019, led the league in goals scored with 23 as his team won the title.
In recent weeks, several well-known players have been connected to transfers to Saudi Arabia. Lionel Messi, who finally chose to sign with Major League Soccer team Inter Miami, was another player that Al Hilal was interested in signing.
With 66 titles under its belt and the most league and Asian Champions titles (18 and 4, respectively), Al Hilal is the most decorated club in Saudi Arabia and Asia.
The Riyadh-based club, which has lost its league and Champions League titles, prioritizes strengthening the roster.">
