Aberdeen have agreed a deal to sign Carlisle United forward Sam Cosgrove, HITC Sport understands.
Cosgrove only joined Carlisle last summer after leaving Wigan Athletic on a free transfer.
Cosgrove left the Latics at the end of last season after one EFL Cup appearance for them
The 20-year-old joined Wigan in 2013 after coming through the youth ranks at Everton, but made only one EFL Cup appearance for them during his time at the DW Stadium.
Cosgrove was a regular in Wigan's Under-21s side, but he spent most of his time out on loan at non-league sides Barrow, Nantwich Town and Chorley.
The 6ft 3in striker has caught the eye for Carlisle despite making only 11 appearances and scoring one goal for the Cumbrians.
The big target man has alerted Aberdeen scouts who have been scouring the market for a new forward and they have decided to make a move for Cosgrove as Dereke McInnes sees him as a potential star in the making.
