The Premier League champions Manchester City have reportedly outlined their intentions to move for Sporting Gijon youngster Pelayo Morilla, according to The Mirror.
The 17-year-old has broken into the Gijon first team this term, making four substitute appearances and scoring his first senior goal in the Copa del Rey in September.
The Spain Under-19 international is understood to be highly rated in Spain’s Segunda División, and reports claim that City head-coach Pep Guardiola is keen to keep a close eye on his development.
The Citizens have sent scouts to monitor the striker’s progress and could look to test Gijon’s resolve with a January bid.
Pelayo still has 18 months left on his contract with Gijon.
