Manchester City’s Lukas Nmecha struggled to perform well during his previous loan spells at Preston North End, Wolfsburg and Middlesbrough.
The Citizens allowed the striker to join Anderlecht on a loan deal last summer and he’s turned things around in Belgium.
Nmecha has 18 goals and three assists to his name in all competitions this season and his goalscoring form has convinced the team led by Vincent Kompany to extend his stay beyond this campaign.
His contract at the Etihad expires in 2022 and earlier reports suggested Manchester City will extend the Germany U21 international’s contract and send him out on loan again in the next market.
On April 29th, Het Nieuwsblad reported Pep Guardiola’s side are not planning to extend Nmecha’s contract and are instead looking to make cash through his sale in the summer. These claims are now backed by Kalu Nmecha, the father of the City owned player.
“As far as I am concerned, it would certainly be smart to stay with Anderlecht, but the decision does not only lie with Lukas… We shall see,” Kalu was quoted as saying by Het Laatste Nieuws.
“There is a lot of interest from the Bundesliga and the Premier League, City wants to sell Nmecha as expensive as possible.”
