Man City ‘eyeing’ move for highly-rated Ajax star and more transfer rumours

That is according to a report by Dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad, as cited by Soccer News, which claims City, who face Bournemouth in the Premier League on Saturday, are keen on signing the 18-year-old. The Blues are constantly on the hunt for fresh talent and, as a result, have been alerted to Misehouy&aposs situation in the Netherlands.

The 18-year-old, who is primarily an attacking midfielder, is out-of-contract at Ajax at the end of this season, meaning several clubs, according to the report, are currently keeping a watchful eye on his development. The Dutch giants have reportedly been in talks with the youngster over a new deal but talks have failed to advance.

It is claimed the City Football Group have made their interest in Misehouy &aposknown&apos to Ajax. Currently on the books of the club&aposs second team, commonly known as Jong Ajax, the youngster has enjoyed an impressive start to this season, scoring five goals in his first eight appearances, as well as chipping in with two assists.

His fine start to this campaign means he is already just one goal contribution short of equalling last season&aposs tally of seven. He scored seven goals in all competitions, as well as grabbing one assist. He is yet to make his debut for Ajax&aposs first-team, but he has earned one cap for the Netherlands at Under-19 level.

Meanwhile, Spanish heavyweights Real Madrid are said to have been &aposoffered the chance&apos to sign City midfielder Kalvin Phillips. That is according to a report by Defensa Central, which claims intermediaries have &aposcontacted&apos Madrid to see if they would be interested in signing the England international.

Phillips has failed to force his way into Pep Guardiola&aposs plans at the Etihad Stadium since his move from Leeds United in July 2022, making just 27 appearances in all competitions. He has played just six times this season and has not featured in any of City&aposs last three Premier League outings.

While on international duty with England last month, the defensive-midfielder hinted that he wants to secure more minutes by any means necessary, blaming his sloppy performance in the Three Lions&apos 3-1 win over Italy on a lack of opportunities he had been given so far this season.
