Manchester City will be disappointed that they haven’t taken maximum points from their opening four Premier League fixtures, but they aren’t far off the likes of Watford and Liverpool.
The Citizens look a force to be reckoned with in the current campaign under Pep Guardiola as they look to defend their Premier League title. And, it appears as if the Spaniard is looking to bring a youngster to the club, as according to the Evening Standard, Manchester City are tracking Fulham’s Harvey Elliott.
It’s understood that the Premier League champions are aware of the youngster’s progress, along with the likes of Borussia Dortmund, Chelsea and Barcelona.
Harvey Elliott does not turn 16 until April but was this week invited to train with the first-team squad members who have remained at Fulham during the international break.
However, FA rules mean he cannot formally discuss a scholarship deal until January, nor commit to a professional deal until he is 17, which potentially opens the door for other clubs to move in.
There’s no doubt that the youngster is one of the hottest prospects in English football right now and could follow in the footsteps of his fellow teammate Ryan Sessegnon.
The midfielder is attracting the interest from a number of European giants, so it may be difficult for the Citizens to lure him to the Etihad. Although, as the defending Premier League champions and with Phil Foden already in their ranks, perhaps it will offer an incentive to the Fulham youngster.Like what the TT have on offer?
