Manchester City front-runners to sign Savinho

Manchester City are reportedly keen on signing 19-year-old Brazilian attacker Savinho from sister club Troyes.

A report from Daily Star has claimed that Premier League champions Manchester City are now the front-runners to sign 19-year-old Brazilian attacker Savinho.

Savinho on the Rise

Savinho has 11 goal contributions for Girona this season, and he could develop into a top-class player in the coming seasons. Manchester City are looking to add more quality and depth in the final third, and the 19-year-old would be a solid acquisition.

The Brazilian Under-20 international winger is currently on loan at Girona from French club Troyes. Both Girona and Troyes are owned by the City Football Group. So, Manchester City have a major advantage in the race to sign the player.

The winger could be available for a fee of around just £10 million, and Manchester City should look to secure his signature in the coming months. The Premier League giants signed Jeremy Doku in the summer, and the Belgian has made a miassive impact since joining the club. Manchester City need to bring in another specialist winger, and Savinho certainly fits the profile.

Premier League Calling?

Moving to the Premier League would be an exciting step up in his career, and he would get to test himself at the highest level. The opportunity to play for one of the biggest clubs in the world will be hard to turn down. Manchester City have the finances to compete for major trophies every season, and they have a world class manager like Pep Guardiola in charge.

The 19-year-old Brazilian will look to fulfil his tremendous potential under the guidance of the Spanish manager. The reported asking price seems like a major bargain, and Manchester City should look to take advantage of their situation and sign the player quickly.

Meanwhile, Savinho has helped Girona push for the league title this season, and they are currently on top of La Liga. It remains to be seen whether the Brazilian can help them win the title before leaving the club at the end of the season.
