Manchester City are set to sign Millwall youngster Samuel Edozie – with a compensation package for the 16-year-old comfortably into six figures.
And the Lions could recoup more than £1million if the winger makes an impact at the Premier League giants.
Chelsea are also keen on Edozie but it looks as if City, who did the domestic treble this season, have won the race for his services.
It would be the second time that the Manchester outfit have raided Millwall for one of their top prospects with Darko Gyabi, then 14, joining them in November.
The same kind of financial outlay is understood to apply to Edozie.
