Manchester City appear to be bringing in another Jeremy Doku in 19-year-old gem, as amazing stat emerges

Manchester City is reportedly on the verge of signing Savio, a Brazilian player who could be likened to another Jeremy Doku-type talent. The deal, agreed just ahead of the Brentford game, involves City acquiring Savio, currently on loan at Girona from ESTAC Troyes. The 19-year-old has excelled, contributing seven goals and seven assists in 27 appearances across competitions for the La Liga side.

City’s move for Savio, scrutinized by the Premier League due to common ownership of Girona and Troyes by the City Football Group, may bring another dynamic player similar to Jeremy Doku into Pep Guardiola’s squad. While the deal is expected to be finalized by the end of February, Savio is projected to join City’s first team from July, starting pre-season under Guardiola.

Savio’s style of play aligns with exciting dribbling skills, as evidenced by leading La Liga in completed dribbles this season (62), according to WhoScored. The South American talent has garnered attention for his direct and skillful approach, drawing comparisons to Doku, renowned for his dribbling ability.

Despite considerations around City Football Group ownership, Savio’s impending move to City suggests the acquisition of an exciting and promising young talent. His experience in La Liga, coupled with Eredivisie exposure with PSV Eindhoven, positions him as a potential addition to City’s squad for the upcoming season. Guardiola may make a final decision after observing Savio during pre-season training.
