Manchester City eye Udinese starlet Piotr Zielinski

Manchester City are keeping tabs on the latest star to come through the Udinese academy Piotr Zielinski, reports talkSPORT.

Zielinski has impressed since being offered professional terms by the Serie A club in 2012. Despite only making two substitute appearances for Udinese, Zielinski has lit up the international stage, scoring three goals in five games for the Polish senior side.

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini is believed to be well aware of the talents of the Polish midfielder and is considering a January move for the player.

The Chilean is apparently keen to bring in a number of the finest young prospects around and has also been linked to Manchester United's Adnan Januzaj.

However, the complications that come with bringing a player to the Etihad from their closest rivals make 19-year-old Zielinski an attractive alternative.

The last player to make the switch was Argentinian Carlos Tevez, who went from a hero at Old Trafford to a villain overnight.

Zielinski is the latest young star to come through the famed Udinese academy, who are famed for their extensive scouting network.

Most notably Alexis Sanchez, Gokhan Inler and Cristian Zapata have all been brought in from a young age before being sold for a big profit.
