Manchester City lead the race to sign Dutch playmaker Adam Maher, according to reports. claims the Citizens lead Premier League rivals Arsenal and Chelsea in the chase for the player, who turned down the chance to join the current champions as a youth player.

Maher has been earning rave reviews in the Eredivisie this season, and has scored seven goals in 29 total appearances this term for his club.

Despite being contracted to the AFAS Stadion until 2015, the report claims his future with the club could be coming to an end, as Manchester City prepare a bid for the £8million-rated attacking midfielder.

PSV Eindhoven and Ajax are also keen on the three-cap international, but Txiki Begiristain - Manchester City’s director of football – has held talks over bringing the player to the Etihad Stadium already.

And, his possible arrival at the club could mean the end for Samir Nasri, with claiming that the 19-year-old is a possible replacement for the out-of-favour Frenchman.

Roberto Mancini has vast financial sums at his disposal thanks to the club's mega-rich Middle Eastern owners, and has shown in the past that he’s willing to spend to bring the best young players to Manchester City. Maher appears to be the next young talent in the Italian’s transfer sights.
