Manchester City Youngster Lukas Nmecha Wanted By Nigeria Nigeria are trying to convince Manchester City starlet Lukas Nmecha to swtich his national allegiances – a move that would see the young striker turn out for a third country. Nmecha caught the eye at the Under-21 European Championships, scoring the winning goal in the final for Germany against Portugal, as well as finishing as the tournament’s top goalscorer. Nmecha, who was born in Hamburg, originally began his international youth career with England, turning out for the Young Lions at all age groups between Under-16 and Under-21. The striker qualified through residential purposes, having moved to the UK with his family at a young age, enrolling in City’s academy. Nmecha scored the winner for England’s Under-19s in their European Championship final in 2017, also against Portugal.

The 22-year-old qualifies through his father, who was born in Nigeria. Nmecha has impressed this season while on loan at Anderlecht in Belgium’s top flight. The forward scored 19 goals in all competitions for Vincent Kompany’s men as they finished fourth in the league. His performances have attracted interest from across the continent, and it is reported that Pep Guardiola could be ready to cash in on Nmecha’s success. Rated at around £7million, it is thought City could be set to offload the academy graduate in a bid to raise funds for Erling Haaland.
