London rivals Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal are thought to be among five clubs fighting it out to sign Manchester City youngster Kian Breckin in the summer.
Breckin came through the Man City academy and is now part of their Under 21 squad.
The highly-rated young midfielder has made 26 appearances for the City youth side this season, scoring seven goals and registering four assists (Transfermarkt).
With no senior appearances for Pep Guardiola’s team so far, Breckin could well be on the move in search of more opportunities.
There is expected to be plenty of interest in securing the services of the 19-year-old, and apparently City are open to selling in the summer.
A report from The Sun claims five Premier League clubs are circling Breckin. Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, and Southampton are named as the interested parties.
Breckin, the son of former Nottingham Forest defender Ian, could well be trading the blue of Manchester for another top-flight side come the summer.
However, the report predicts only a “sizeable bid” would be enough to get a deal over the line.
Southampton were first mooted as a potential suitor back in January (The Sun) but no move came to fruition at the time.
Now, it seems Breckin is keen to start playing first-team football and could be willing to move away from Manchester.
Whether City will accept a bid for one of their most productive youth prospects, especially from a division rival, remains to be seen.

I am really enjoying the fact we are looking at all these young players as we desperately need to flesh out our development squad and look to the future.
Sadly, if Breckin is looking for regular football, I can’t see him choosing to come to us, but we shall see what happens in the summer.
