Portuguese giants Porto have reached an agreement to sign striker Alberto Bueno for next season, according to O Jogo.

The newspaper claims on its front page that a deal has been struck with Rayo Vallecano that will see the player at the Estadio do Dragao next year, where he will link up with fellow Spaniard Julen Lopetegui who was appointed boss before the start of this season.

Lopetegui knows the player from his time in charge at Real Madrid Castilla during the 2008-09 campaign and has been keen to bring in a replacement for Jackson Martinez, who is expected to leave the club this summer.

Bueno, 27, is the top Spanish goalscorer in La Liga this term, having plundered 16 goals so far, and is fifth in the overall fight for the prestigious Pichichi award.
