Lyon have bolstered their midfield with the signing of Fabio Santos from Cruzeiro.
The 26-year-old moves to the Stade Gerland for é¼4.2million (£2.85million) and has penned a three-and-a-half year deal.
Santos joins fellow Brazilians Juninho, Fred, Claudio Cacapa and Cris at Lyon and is keen to succeed.
"I want to play as well as the Brazilians that are already at Lyon have done," Santos said.
"It's an advantage for me to move to a new team with other Brazilians because it will help me get adapted easier.
"My dream was to have the chance to return to Europe at some point, especially to Lyon because this team wins all the time and I hope it continues."
