According to a recent report from Manchester Evening News, it is evident that Manchester City are hoping to close a deal for Everton midfielder Emilio Lawrence. The Mancunian giants have had a busy transfer window this summer as they brought in a few big names in European football. However, that hasn’t stopped Guardiola from focusing on the academy and they have successfully lined up a deal for Everton’s academy product behind the curtains.

Manchester City’s Wider Transfer Policy

After the United Kingdom made an exit from the European Union, a consequence of that decision was the denial of Premier League clubs to bring in young talents from various parts of Europe. As a result, the clubs were confined to the United Kingdom for bringing in young talented individuals that would make them command significant fees.

The battle amongst top Premier League clubs to find top British talent to bolster their squad has intensified over the years but the Etihad club has never backed down on a challenge. They have continued to find top talents across England as we’ve seen with the rise of Phil Foden and the players following his footsteps at the Academy in the form of James McAtee and Cole Palmer.

This makes it more evident that the Sky Blues are not just splashing huge sums of money for players already in the spotlight, they have a wider transfer policy that looks to bring in young individuals and develop them further to make them capable of moving to the senior team or being loaned out to play at a high level all across Europe.

Lawrence A Brilliant Addition To The Youth Academy?

The 16-year-old has impressed in the central areas of the field, already making his under-23 debut at Merseyside. He has caught the eye of Pep Guardiola and his addition makes it prevalent that the Sky Blues will continue to lead in the youth department finding extraordinary talents to bolster their academy.
