Manchester City have reportedly joined Juventus in the race for the highly-rated Red Bull Salzburg teenage sensation Luka Reischl, according to reports in Italy and England
As reported by the English outlet, TalkSPORT, the reigning Premier League holders are closely following the 16-year-old striker, who has emerged as one of the hottest young prospects in Europe.
Reischl has netted 63 goals in only 41 outings for Salzburg at the youth level, with 16 of them coming in ten appearances this season.
As a consequence, a host of Europe’s royalty has started tracking the Austrian prodigy, who has yet to sign a senior deal with the Red Bull outfit.
Man City looking to snap-up RB Salzburg 16-year-old goal machine Luka Reischl… and could land him for bargain fee https://t.co/eAVyqinb4N— The Sun – Man City (@SunManCity) February 4, 2020
The perennial Austrian champions could risk losing their starlet without a compensation fee unless they lure him to sign a professional contract as soon as possible.
Salzburg have been a factory of talents in the past few years, with some of their former players now starring in the Premier League and the Bundesliga.
Pep Guardiola is always attentive when it comes to bright young talents, and the lure of working under the Spaniard may be too tempting to resist for Reischl if the chance presents itself.
