Boss Steve Clarke told the club’s official website:

“Lucas is a very talented attacking player who can create chances and score goals.

“When we spoke I was impressed by both his maturity and desire to prove himself in English football after some loan moves to European leagues. I’m sure Lucas will bring something extra to our squad this season.”

Chief executive Nigel Howe added:

“We are excited to welcome Lucas to Madejski Stadium. He is a player with real talent and under Steve’s management and the club’s guidance we are sure he can flourish over the next 12 months.

“We are very pleased to have completed this deal, and as I speak, one can never be certain but we remain active in the transfer market.”
