Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City are interested in signing Stoke City youngster Emre Tezgel, according to the Daily Mail.
Tezgel has caught the eye with a number of impressive performances for Stoke City’s U18s in the U18 Premier League this season.
The 16-year-old has scored an impressive seven goals in four games – a hat-trick against Liverpool, and two braces against Sunderland and Manchester United.
United are now showing an interest in Tezgel, with Chelsea and Manchester City also tracking the young forward ahead of a potential move.

Tezgel has also impressed for England’s U17s, scoring four goals in three games for the Young Lions. He was named Player of the Tournament in the Syrenka Cup in September.
Stoke’s academy director, Gareth Owen, likened Tezgel to Tottenham Hotspur and England striker Harry Kane, with the young forward catching the eye.
Stoke’s first-team are doing very well indeed in the Championship, beating West Brom 1-0 on Friday night. They sit fourth in the Championship after 11 games.
Tezgel looks like a real talent and a confident young player who cannot seem to stop scoring for club or country.
He’s only 16 though which is worth remembering, and he can’t afford to move somewhere where he falls out of favour.
He is a big fish in a small pond at Stoke and their system is getting the best out of him at the moment, but naturally, clubs like United, City and Chelsea will turn a young player’s head.
