Manchester City are tracking Fulham teenager Cody Drameh, according to a Daily Mirror report this morning.
The Premier League giants have been watching the 18-year-old right back as one for the future.
Drameh is regarded as one of Fulham ’s most promising next wave of young players coming through and Liverpool and Leeds have looked at the England under-18 international in the past.
City could see London-born Drameh as a young English player who could boost their home grown quota as well as potentially signing him and then loaning him out to allow him to get game time.
They did exactly the same thing with Patrick Roberts, signing the winger for £12million from Fulham in 2015 and then loaning him out.
Fulham has enjoyed a brilliant reputation in recent seasons for producing young players with Ryan Sessegnon their shining light as the England prospect left Craven Cottage for Tottenham last summer for £25m.
Drameh has been making excellent progress at Fulham and has already played for the under-23s despite his age and is seen as another one off the production line.
Sessegnon and his twin brother Steven plus the likes of England under-21 keeper Marcus Bettinelli is proof they are bringing talent through.
Drameh has one year left on his current deal and big clubs – including City – have been keeping tabs in the past few seasons on his development.
City will have the finances to spend this summer but are also keen to build up their reserves of home grown talent while also having one of the best coaching and youth academies in Europe.
Leeds were reported to have made a bid last year while Liverpool have also been keeping tabs on his progress.
