Blackburn Rovers striker Roque Santa Cruz is undergoing a medical ahead of his proposed transfer to Manchester City.
It was widely reported that the two Premier League clubs agreed a transfer fee of around £18m on Friday.
City manager Mark Hughes brought the Paraguay international to Rovers for just £3.8m from Bayern Munich two years ago and is eager to be reunited with the striker at Eastlands.
The 27-year-old enjoyed a tremendous first season in England but struggled for form and fitness following Hughes' move from Blackburn to Manchester in June 2008.
Monday's medical will no doubt focus on Santa Cruz's troublesome knees. He has had three knee operations during his career; most recently in April, which ruled him out for the last three months of the 2008-09 Premier League season.
Santa Cruz would be City's second signing, following the £12m capture of Gareth Barry from Aston Villa, in a summer in which they are in the hunt for "four to six players" to "set the tone very clearly" for the club's pursuit of silverware, according to chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak.

Dutch midfielder Wesley Sneijder has "no intention" of leaving Real Madrid.
The influential midfielder has been the subject of transfer talks with links to clubs in the Premier League, namely Arsenal and Tottenham.
Much speculation has arisen about the Dutch international's place at the Bernabeu after the signings of superstars Kaka and Cristiano Ronaldo during the transfer window.
Speaking to AS, he said: "I have no intention of leaving Real Madrid,
"Nobody called me to speak about that and what I want to do is stay at Madrid because I battled hard to join this club and being successful in this shirt is my aim.
"No doubt about it. I am pretty much relaxed and cannot wait to get back to work.
"Playing alongside Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka or Franck Ribery is an honour for every player."
Sneijder it seems, has another battle waiting for him, a place in midfield.
