On March 4th, we covered claims from Turkey that Manchester City were one of the clubs to monitor Beşiktaş’ Semih Kılıçsoy live in action against Galatasaray earlier this year.

Later that month, Akşam stated the Premier League winners have gathered positive reports about the 18-year-old.

Fast forward to April and a fresh report from Akşam provides the latest on Manchester City’s efforts to try and sign the forward in the summer window.

Operating across all three attacking positions, Kılıçsoy has scored 11 goals and registered two assists from 29 games this season and the majority of them were managed this year.

The player’s impressive performances in recent months would have pleased the Citizens and they are willing to take further steps to secure his services.

After following the Turkey U21 international closely, it’s claimed Manchester City are now ‘preparing to make an offer’ in the next window.

The report further adds Pep Guaridola’s side are preparing to propose a five-year deal to the youngster and a €30m fee to the Black Eagles.

If Manchester City were to secure a deal for Kılıçsoy for the aforementioned figure, Akşam say it’ll be a new Süper Lig record, surpassing the fee Real Madrid paid to Fenerbahçe for Arda Güler last summer.
