Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will sign Velez Sarsfield striker Maximiliano Romero, agent Rolando Zarate has confirmed.
The 17-year-old is expected to stay in Argentina for two more seasons before joining the Gunners for the 2018/2019 campaign.
Zarate announced the transfer last month but Spanish website Todo Mercato Web says the transfer will be made official in the coming weeks.
"Maxi has huge potential," Zarate said in quotes translated by Marca.
"I went to London to talk about Arsenal's offer, and then took it back to [Velez president] Raul Gamez.
"Arsenal agreed to our main terms: that the player remains at Velez for two more years.
"Maxi is going to complete his apprenticeship at a great club like Velez. I met with Arsene Wenger twice in London. I negotiated with him and then with his assistants.
"They heard about Maxi Romero through their scouts in America. He was the player who most impressed them."
