Leeds United failed in a bid to sign Cody Drameh from Fulham last year but they might have a second chance to land the young right-back in the coming months.
According to the Mirror, Manchester City are keen on signing the 18-year-old defender as they view him as someone who could develop into something special in the future.
It is understood that if Man City manage to sign Drameh then they might send him out on loan in order to gain invaluable first-team experience.
Drameh is reportedly one of the most promising young players at Fulham, whose reputation for nurturing top young talent is growing year by year.
Ryan Sessegnon, Mousse Dembele, Eberechi Eze and Patrick Roberts have all emerged at Craven Cottage in recent years and teen sensation Drameh could be next to join that impressive list of names.
Liverpool have also shown a reported interest in Drameh but Leeds have also been linked in the past.
Last year, Leeds made an offer to sign the England Under-18 international but, clearly, failed to land him as he ended up staying put at Fulham.
But with Man City entering the race and potentially loaning out the youngster, Leeds might stand a good chance of striking a temporary deal with the Premier League giants based on how well Jack Harrison has done on loan at Elland Road and Marcelo Bielsa’s relationship with Pep Guardiola.
The Athletic’s Phil Hay has already reported that Man City are keen to send young Brazilian right-back Yan Couto on loan to Elland Road but Leeds have not been reported to have shown interest in him.
But they have been interested in Drameh in the past and might be receptive to receiving the impressive teenager on loan.
This season, Drameh has made 17 Premier League 2 appearances for Fulham’s Under-23s and supplied seven assists.
He is clearly an attack-minded right-back that might come in handy as a back-up option for Luke Ayling in the Premier League.
