Manchester City is considering a move for a 22-year-old player often dubbed as the ‘next Ferran Torres’ from Villarreal as they eye a replacement for Kevin de Bruyne.

The Etihad Stadium outfit is reportedly exploring the option of bringing in this Spanish talent to bolster their squad. This rising star, Alex Baena, has been one of the standout performers in La Liga this season, contributing significantly with 5 goals and 13 assists across all competitions, earning recognition as one of Europe’s top assist providers.

Baena typically operates in the number 10 role but is versatile enough to play in various attacking positions when required. This versatility has caught the attention of several clubs, including Manchester City, who are in need of a replacement for the aging and injury-prone Kevin de Bruyne.

Apart from interest from clubs like Aston Villa and Tottenham, Manchester City is now in the mix for the 22-year-old striker’s signature in the upcoming summer transfer window.

Valued at 25 million euros by Transfermarkt, Baena is expected to command a higher fee due to his potential and the competitive market. Villarreal holds the leverage in negotiations as the player’s contract with them runs until 2028.
