Manchester City have reportedly offered Celtic the opportunity to sign youngster Ian Poveda, who is also attracting interest from Leeds United and Torino.

Celtic have reportedly been offered the opportunity to sign Manchester City youngster Ian Poveda.

Having only made one senior appearance for the Premier League giants, the 19-year-old is free to leave the Etihad Stadium in one of the next two transfer windows.

While Torino are regarded as the favourites, Leeds United have been strongly linked with an approach for the prospect as they look to increase their options in the final third.

However, according to Tuttosport, City want Celtic to follow up their initial interest to increase their efforts to include a buy-back clause.

The two clubs have successfully worked on deals in the past, with Patrick Roberts having recently spent an 18-month loan spell in Glasgow and Jeremie Frimpong having impressed since joining Celtic in September.

Poveda also finds himself in a position where he can pen a pre-contract agreement with a foreign clubs.
