Manchester City are set to beat Italian giants Inter Milan for the signing of French wonderkid Lucien Agoume in the summer, according to a report from the Daily Star.
The 17-year-old, dubbed as the new Paul Pogba, has attracted interest from a whole host of top clubs including Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and RB Leipzig but the report reveals that the Premier League champions and Inter are the favourites to land the Frenchman.
City can snap up Agoume for as little as £4.43million this summer transfer window but Inter are said to be deep in talks to sign the young midfielder.
However, Pep Guardiola’s side will sweeten the deal by offering a young player of their own on a loan deal to Sochaux to lure them into selling Agoume.
The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss has already proven that he is willing to give opportunities to young players in the first team, as evident with Phil Foden and Oleksandr Zinchenko.
The teenager is rightly dubbed as the new Paul Pogba and his performances on the pitch will remind you of the French World Cup winner.
Just like Pogba, the 17-year-old is incredibly athletic and can play anywhere across central midfield.
Agoume has mainly been used as a defensive midfielder this season but he has shown his willingness to get involved in the attack on a consistent basis.
Should Pep Guardiola sign Lucien Agoume?
