Manchester City are closing in on the signing of Athletic Bilbao forward Fernando Llorente.
According to The Sun, both clubs are in negotiations with a fee of around £30million being agreed.
The Spanish international has scored 23 goals so far this season and despite progressing to the semi-finals of this years Europa League, Bilbao are in danger of failing to qualify for next years competition.
A number of clubs are interested in Llorente, 22, but very few clubs will want to match the £200,000 a-week offer from City.
