Mexican starlet Marco Bueno looks set to become Liverpool's latest addition of the summer, after his current employers Pachuca confirmed a deal was almost agreed.
According to Andres Fassi - vice-president of the Primera División club - the 17-year-old striker is closing in on a move to Merseyside, and reports suggest he will sign a five-year deal with the Reds.
"We are conducting negotiations with Liverpool and possibly, on August 1, Marco Bueno will pay a visit to Liverpool," said Fassi.
"We have already practically closed negotiations with them. They want to buy 100% of the rights.''
Bueno - who has been compared to compatriot Javier Hernandez - was a an integral member of Mexico's under-17 World Cup winning squad earlier this month, and will come to Anfield with a reputation that is growing with each passing day.
The teenager will become the fifth Liverpool signing of the transfer window thus far, with Jordan Henderson, Charlie Adam, Stewart Downing and Alexander Doni already having made moves to Anfield.
Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish has confirmed the Reds are still in the hunt for more recruits prior to the start of the new campaign on August 13.
