Manchester City have reportedly expressed an interest in making a £5.5m bid to sign Atletico Mineiro’s highly-rated teenager Savio.
The 17-year-old, who has made 23 senior appearances in all competitions for the Brasileiro champions, is believed to have earned plenty of plaudits with his performances across a number of clubs in Europe.
Negotiations between Man City and Atletico Mineiro are ongoing, and Fabrizio Romano in The Guardian claims that the English champions have tabled a £5.5m offer plus add-ons for the starlet.
The report goes on to claim that if the deal goes through then the teenager would be expected to move to the Etihad Stadium in the summer.
RB Leipzig, Red Bull Salzburg and Arsenal are also understood to have made contract with Savio’s representatives, however, the Citizens are currently at the head of the queue for his signature.
