Argentinian midfielder Bruno Zuculini has had a medical at Manchester City ahead of his proposed move to the club.
The 21-year-old midfielder was photographed in Manchester on Friday morning and is thought to be close to a move to the Premier League champions from Racing Club of Buenos Aires.
He looks set to become Manuel Pellegrini's third signing of the summer following Fernando from Porto and Bacary Sagna from Arsenal.
Zuculini, whose older brother Franco is already an Argentina international, made his debut for Racing in 2010, aged 17, and has made nearly 100 appearances for the club.
It was widely reported in February that Racing had already had talks with City about a potential transfer for former Argentina U20 international Zuculini this summer at the end of his contract.
