Greek website Pagenews.Gr reports Manchester City are keeping tabs on Panathinaikos youngster Georgios Vagiannidis.

It’s been reported Manchester City scouts were recently in the stands to watch the right back play against Olympiacos in the national U17 league.

Vagiannidis has come through the ranks at Panathinaikos academy and is expected to become a first team regular in the coming years.

The 16-year-old defender is highly rated in Greece, and it’s reported Manchester City could face competition from La Liga sides Sevilla and Valencia.

Panathinaikos are in deep financial trouble and this season they were deducted points due to their situation.

The Greek giants are in need of money so this could play into Manchester City’s hands if talks commence.

Should the player be signed by Manchester City it’s likely he would be loaned out to another club to continue his progression, or be placed in the Premier League champions’ academy.
