Manchester City have reached an agreement with Brazilian side Fluminense for the transfer of highly-rated forward Kayky, the Premier League leaders said.
Kayky has scored two goals in eight games for Fluminense in their state championship. He also played in the club's Copa Libertadores clash with River Plate earlier this week.
“Kayky is a player who stands out a lot for his technical quality, especially with regard to one-on-ones, and also in his quality in front of goal," Fluminense's U17 coach Guilherme Torres told Goal in February.
