Man City is willing to pay 2 million euros (£ 1.7 million) for Borussia Dortmund starlet Nnamdi Collins, according to reports.
The 16-year-old defender has impressed Dortmund’s under-17 team since joining the club from Fortuna Düsseldorf last summer.
He scored four goals and an assist in 19 appearances and represented Germany at the youth level.
German media Bild says Man City is keeping an eye on Collins, in which they see “a lot of potential.”
Chelsea are also said to be interested in Collins, who is highly rated by Dortmund leaders.
Borussia Dortmund and Man City last did their business when the Premier League champions sold Jadon Sancho to the Bundesliga giants for just £ 8m in 2017.
Today, 19-year-old Sancho is considered one of the most exciting talents in the world and continues to be linked to relocations to Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea.
The English winger has 14 goals and assists in just 22 Bundesliga games this season.
Dortmund are renowned for providing first team opportunities to young players such as Sancho, Erling Haaland, 19, Dan-Axel Zagadou, 20 and Giovanni Reyna, 17.
He could see Collins, a candidate to be Dortmund’s last young star, snub City and Chelsea to pursue his career in Germany.
