IFK Göteborg midfielder Jesper Tolinsson has revealed his desire to turn out for Manchester City at some point in his career.

The young centre-back has spent the entirety of his career so far at Göteborg, working his way up through their youth ranks to now feature for the first team.

This summer, he’s set to move to Belgium, though, having agreed a £1.8m deal to join Lommel SK when the season comes to an end.

The move to Belgium will be his chance to put himself on the European stage properly but also start his journey up the City Group.

Lommel are a part of the collection of clubs owned by the Manchester City owners, with Pep Guardiola’s side at the top of the chain.

Players regularly move between the clubs as a result, with several having ended up at Manchester City before too long.

That is something Tolinsson is looking to repeat, although he knows it won’t be easy to end up at the Etihad.

“The plan is that I will play as much as possible and continue to take steps,” Fotbollskanalen report him saying.

“It is up to me to perform and develop. Then the highest ambition is for me to go to Manchester City, it is clear that you have to have high goals.

“I know that not all guys end up there and that the road there is long. I take one step at a time.”
