Manchester City are set to wrap up a deal for RB Leipzig defender, Josko Gvardiol.
The two clubs have reached an agreement on a transfer fee of £77.6m (€90m).
The deal would not be a record deal for a defender with Harry Maguire costing Manchester United £80m in 2019.
Factoring in exchange rate changes and inflation, the deal is costing City just a few million more than the £75m paid by Liverpool for Virgil van Dijk.
Gvardiol is a left-footed Croatia international centre-back, widely regarded as one of the top centre-backs in Europe,
The 21-year-old has been coveted by a number of top clubs, insluding Chelsea and Tottenham, who both wanted to sign him last year.
