He had previously been part of the youth setup at Bayern Munich before making the move to Augsburg in 2017.
Aged just 17, he hadn’t made his senior debut for the club before he opted to leave.
For now, it’s Bundesliga outfit Wolfsburg who are considered the favourites in the competition for his signature.
The ‘super-talent’ tag for Pejcinovic is certainly justified. He scored 12 goals in 21 appearances in the Under-17 Bundesliga (South/Southwest division) last season and promptly graduated to the Under-19 equivalent ahead of schedule (via Transfermarkt).
However, what’s most impressive is his record for Germany at under-17 level. In his first 16 caps at that age group, he has remarkably scored 17 goals and provided five assists.
How many trophies will Man City win this season?
Talent scout Jacek Kulig has described that record as ‘phenomenal’ and talked up Pejcinovic’s ruthlessness in front of goal, billing him a ‘natural born killer’.
He would probably join up with City’s under-18s or under-23s at first if he were to move to the Etihad Stadium, but he certainly seems to be a name to remember for the future.
