Man City close to beating Chelsea to exciting winger Samuel Edozie
MAN CITY are closing in on a deal for Millwall youngster Samuel Edozie.
The 16-year-old has also been targeted by Chelsea but looks set to move to the Etihad Stadium.
Both Premier League giants have been tracking the Nigerian winger in Millwall’s Under-16s and have made a move to arrive him.
Edozie has also featured in the U18s and U19s sides for the Lions this term in spite of his youthful age.
He is one of the Championship club’s leading prospects with both City and Chelsea watching him in real life.
But the Londoners are thought to be desperate to keep hold of their wonder with the end goal for him to proceed with his improvement.
City could pay as much as £1million to Millwall for Edozie.
His signing will be the second time the Pep Guardiola’s side have raided Millwall for one of their top young prospects.
