Portuguese daily newspaper Record understands that RB Leipzig are set to complete the signing of Benfica youngster Umaro Embalo.
Even though a number of top European clubs are hot on the trail of the 16-year-old footballer, the Bundesliga side were the first to make a concrete move and they are now set to win the race for his signature.
Benfica chairman Luis Filipe Vieira traveled to Germany yesterday to finalise the deal that could be worth up to €15 million.
Various performance related bonuses are likely to be included as the Eagles believe Embalo has what it takes to develop into a high-quality footballer.
The youngster has been bagging goals for fun at youth level with both Benfica and Portugal, and he could soon get a chance to prove his skills at senior level.
