Benfica and Sporting circle for Manchester City forward as transfer plan in place revealed for upcoming match



| Last Updated:


Manchester City’s young academy talents are again at the centre of transfer interest, with a new report detailing the Portuguese giants circling for their latest rising star.

That information concerns 20-year-old Norwegian youth international Oscar Bobb, who impressed viewers during his senior first-team debut for Manchester City in their 3-5 pre-season friendly win over Yokohama F Marinos last weekend.

Elsewhere, and as a clash against Bayern Munich appears on the horizon, the future of Kyle Walker rumbles on, with a new suggestion being that the England international is edging towards a move to the Bundesliga giants.

This is everything you need to know from day 40 of the summer transfer window involving the Premier League champions!

Manchester City have told many interested clubs that Oscar Bobb is not for sale. When one ‘top’ club approached, they were told by City that even £15 million would not be enough to buy him. Brighton have been among the Premier League clubs to have expressed the most concrete interest in Bobb. Abroad, the likes of Benfica and Sporting are eager for the 20-year-old.
