Fenerbahce are on the verge of signing Manchester City youngster Douglas Luiz according to reports from Turkey.

The Yellow Canaries are desperate to bolster their options in midfielder after offloading Giuliano over the summer.

Douglas Luiz spent last season out on loan with the La Liga club Girona and is unlikely to feature for Pep Guardiola’s side on a consistent basis this term.

According to the Turkish outlet Ajanspor, Fenerbahce have struck a deal with Man City to take the 20-year-old on a season-long loan.

Per the source, the two club have reached an agreement in principle.

Douglas Luiz made a total of 15 La Liga appearances for Girona last season and is most comfortable playing in central midfield.
