Manchester City have joined Barcelona, Napoli, Arsenal and Atletico Madrid in the race to sign highly-rated San Lorenzo starlet Angel Correa, reports the Daily Mirror.
The 18-year-old striker - who has already been dubbed the 'next Sergio Aguero' - is at the centre of a five-way transfer tug-of-war that is set to ensue this summer.
Citizens boss Manuel Pellegrini is keen to use his South American connections to lure the Argentine youngster to the Etihad Stadium, and steal a march on the player's growing list of suitors.
Arsene Wenger has also been mooted as an admirer of the talented teenager, and is equally keen to add him to his Emirates Stadium ranks.
The Gunners chief has a world-renowned reputation for developing up-and-coming talent, and will hope that gives Arsenal an advantage in the expected tussle for Correa's signature.
The Premier League duo will face stiff competition from La Liga though, with Tata Martino and Diego Simeone both monitoring the situation closely, as they weigh up rival bids to bring the in-demand star to Camp Nou or the Vicente Calderon.
San Lorenzo owner Marcelo Tinelli has placed a minimum £10million valuation on the head of Correa, as he looks to earn as much money as possible for the promising striker.
Manchester City scouts were in attendance to watch him in action in Buenos Aires on Wednesday night, and now look like the frontrunners in the race for his services.
