Manchester United, Chelsea, Manchester City eye wonderkid Emre Tezgel

Premier League clubs Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City are reportedly interested in signing Stoke City teenager Emre Tezgel. 

The 16-year-old has been making waves at youth level having caught the eye playing for Stoke’s youth sides. He featured on a regular basis for his side’s Under-18s last season. The young striker has scored seven goals in four Under-18s matches this season. 

According to the Daily Mail, Stoke are in for a fight to keep hold of the forward. The report claims that Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City are all ‘admirers’ of the youngster.

Why are the Manchester clubs and Chelsea interested in Tezgel?

Man United’s coaches were particularly impressed when Tezgel netted both goals in a 4-2 defeat for Stoke against United’s Under-18s side last month. He also bagged a hat-trick against Liverpool, highlighting his ability in front of goal.

Tezgel is a highly-rated academy prospect at Stoke. He has already made several appearances for the club’s Under-23 side, making his debut at just 15.

Born in Burton, Tezgel holds Turkish citizenship but has represented the country of his birth at youth level in his career so far.

Tezgel helped the young Lions reach the final of the Syrenka Cup in Poland in September. He scored four goals in just three appearances and won the player of the tournament award.

His brilliant form has quite rightly attracted the attention of scouts from the Premier League’s top sides, with Chelsea and both Manchester clubs monitoring his development.

Gareth Owen, head of the academy at Stoke, has compared Tezgel’s style to that of England captain Kane. Additionally, Owen believes his intelligence stretches far beyond his tender age.

“Tezgel’s a Harry Kane-type centre-forward,” Owen told Stoke-on-Trent Live.

“That gets bandied about but his movement is good, he can hold the ball up and he is decent in the air.

“His main attribute, though, is his finishing and that’s what good centre-forwards have.”
