Manchester United intend to bid for Fluminense striker Kenedy in the summer.
Kenedy came to the notice of United scouts at the U20 South American Championships in January.
The Daily Express says a £5.7m bid is set to be launched at the end of the season.
The striker has been likened to Zenit St Petersburg star Hulk.
