According to the Daily Mail, Manchester City are rivalling Everton’s interest for the teenage prodigy and Youtube sensation, Omari Forson. The 14-year-old is a star for the Tottenham Hotspur U14’s and has even been noted to have been on trial at Goodison Park. Should he move to any of the interested parties this summer, Spurs will surely receive compensation for the player’s development.

Forson has a dominant left foot and enjoys playing as a forward. He previously trained in the West Ham United youth ranks before making the switch to Tottenham in 2014. The youngster has long been scouted by the Citizens, with his parents now keen on a move to the Etihad. The video of him performing 100 keepy uppys as an eight-year-old quickly became viral and started drawing the attention of top-tier scouts.

Manchester City boasts of state-of-the-art training facilities and the best coaches since gaining huge monetary backing from Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan. Not only is the club the crowned champions of England, they seemingly are also gathering a spree of world-class talents in their own youth ranks.

This past season we have seen a 17-year-old Phil Foden make his break into the senior team squad and register himself as the youngest person ever to win a Premier League medal. Brahim Diaz is also progressing well next to Foden and is currently being negotiated with over a new contract.

Pablo Maffeo managed to prove his worth in the La Liga this past season and since has been transferred to VfB Stuttgart. While Pep Guardiola cannot be fully credited with the operational success of the club, there certainly seems to be a shift in talent recognition at the club.

City are stacking up the senior team with world-class talents but are also wise enough to follow the blueprint to future success – paying close attention to the club’s academy players. No matter how many marquee footballers they purchase, it is a well-tested theory that a club’s homegrown players are the leading cause to securing elite status.

There is no guarantee whether Forson will pan out as he is thought out to be but challenging for the country’s best young talents is the step in the right direction. Manchester City have taken a massive bite of the cake. Now, they need to learn how to master the art of baking one.
