Manchester City Keep Tabs On MLS Starlet: Perfect Fit For Pep?

Manchester City have had an enthralling start to the season and have won all but one game in the Premier League. They have swept away Premier League minnows and fared decently against the top sides.

With numerous options in the attacking front, the Manchester club has no dearth of options. The main reason behind Pep Guardiola’s success during his time at Barcelona and Bayern Munich is the squad depth which enabled him to rotate it around, because of which he had the luxury to switch his options according to the need.

City perhaps boasts of a similar depth but with numerous competitions to play in and all the money in the world at Pep’s disposal, they need to make sure that they continue to add players young and relatively old, to continue the success.

The recent reports have linked the club with the MLS star Jack Harrison. Playing alongside David Villa, Harrison has been really good for the American side. The attacking-midfielder has 10 goals and 3 assists to his name this season.

At just 20 years of age, he is surprisingly good with the ball at his feet. Harrison primarily plays on the wings and with his pace and skill, this is perhaps the position that suits the youngster the best, although he can play anywhere in the attacking midfield and can be deployed upfront too.

Harrison has an excellent work rate and is capable of making marauding runs down the flanks. He has the ability to take on the defenders and get past them with his pace and dribbling. His footwork is one his most threatening strengths. He is also really good off-the-ball movement and has the instinctive ability to be at the right place at the right time and relish deflected shots that fall around him.

He also keeps the opposition defenders on their toes, making efforts to intercept even defensive passes and makes it hard for the opposition to play out the ball from the back.

Despite being really good in almost all areas, Jack Harrison often has the tendency to do too much on his own, but that is largely due to the willingness to take on the defenders. Also, he is quite young and there often seems to be a rawness about him as with every other 20-year-old. With the whole of his footballing career ahead of him, one could bet that Harrison would surely iron out the creases as he grows.

It remains to be seen which of the Manchester clubs he prefers to go to as the other Manchester club has also been linked with a move for the player. So should City go all in for him?
