The 19-year-old winger would cost around £4.75million if a deal to bring him from Atletico Nacional is completed.

Moreno’s arrival would follow those of Leroy Sane and Gabriel Jesus, whose deals have already concluded this week, although reports have suggested he could immediately be loaned out for experience.

Spanish club Deportivo la Coruna are a reported potential destination for the player, who came through the youth system at Atletico and has earned seven caps for Colombia.

His signing would continue a busy summer at City following the appointment of Pep Guardiola as manager.

Ilkay Gundogan, Oleksandr Zinchenko and Nolito have also joined City with around £100million having been spent reinvigorating the first-team squad.

There could also be further additions, with Everton defender John Stones still being linked with a switch to the Etihad Stadium.
