Enrik Ostrc joined Slovenian side Olimpija Ljubljana in 2018 and after spending two years with their youth system, he was promoted to their first team last June.

The defensive midfielder featured 11 times last term and made 11 more appearances this season, which was sufficient for him to catch the attention of Manchester City.

Pep Guardiola’s side are interested in the 18-year-old and are close to completing his signing, if a report from TuttoMercatoWeb is to be believed.

The report claims the Slovenia U18 international is expected to complete a move to the Etihad club and sign a four-and-a-half-year deal with the Citizens.

Manchester City will pay around €3m including bonuses to Olimpija Ljubljana to acquire the young player’s services.

The website adds Ostrc will not stay at City as the Premier League side will immediately send him out on loan to French side Troyes AC. The two clubs are owned by the City Football Group.

TMW’s report was published on Wednesday and at the end, they state ‘tomorrow medical examinations and signature’. It’s not clear if the medical tests mentioned are with Guardiola’s side or with Troyes.
