The teenage-sensation has been linked with a number of top European clubs including Liverpool but City are plotting to beat them to his signature.

According to Daily Mail quoting Goal claims the Citizens are unsure which club in the City Football Group (CFG) the pair would move to first once they have signed.

This is not the first time City will be buying players from Brazil as they made two signings from the South American country in 2020.

Yan Couto joined them in March, with the Brazilian right-back moving from Coritiba on July 1. He was then loaned out for this season to CFG side Girona, who ply their trade in the Spanish Segunda Division.

City also captured Peruvian defender Kluiverth Aguilar from Alianza Lima for a fee of £1.5million in April. He will join later this year when he turns 18 in May.
