Liverpool close on Man City starlet Rafael Camacho - sources

Manchester City's sparkling new Etihad Campus would be the envy of any top European club.
Manchester City's academy could be set to lose another player.

Liverpool are closing in on a deal for Manchester City youngster Rafael Camacho, sources close to both clubs have told ESPN FC.

Camacho, 15, has been at City since the summer of 2014 after they signed him from Portuguese side Sporting Lisbon.

The midfielder is regarded as one of the best talents to come from Portugal in his age group, having scored three goals in five appearances for his country's under-16s. However, Camacho seems set to leave City with the club informing him he is unlikely to win a professional deal at the Etihad Stadium.

The news has alerted Liverpool who have held a long-term interest in the teenager and talks are at an advanced stage between both parties, sources have told ESPN FC.

Camacho could become the second City youngster to make the move to Liverpool in recent weeks after the Anfield club snapped up defender Diego Lattie last month.
