Manchester City are tying up a work permit for Nigerian attacker Kelechi Iheanacho, according to The Daily Mirror.
The 17-year-old won the Golden Ball, given to the tournament's best players, at last summer's U-17 World Cup in UAE.
He netted six times in seven appearances at the tournament, including a goal against Mexico in the final and four against the same opposition during the group stages.
Iheanacho also provided seven assists during the tournament.
His incredible performances on the U-17 stage caught the eye of Manchester City, whose backroom staff Ferran Soriano and Txiki Begiristain have relocated the youngster to Barcelona to train before joining up with the City squad.
The deal to bring him to the Etihad is said to be worth in the region of £900,000.
Iheanacho will be Manchester City's first signing of the January transfer window if a move does go through before the end of the month.
