West Ham are on the verge of signing Swiss youngster Edimilson Fernandes from Sion FC, according to reports.
The 20-year-old midfielder is set join United in a deal worth aound £5.25million later this week, according to sources.
And he is poised to undergo a medical with club doctors at Holly House on Wednesday before putting pen to paper on his switch.
A cousin of former Manchester City midfielder Gelson Fernandes, Edimilson has spent his entire career with the Swiss Super League outfit.
He made his first team debut for Sion at the age of 17 back in June 2013, before going on to become a regular in the side.
In all Fernandes has made 48 appearances for his current club, scoring two goals. So far this season he has played for Sion in all five of their Swiss League fixtures, only one of which has ended in victory.
