Leicester, Man City eyeing Bursaspor teen Ali Akman

Leicester City and Manchester City are eyeing Bursaspor teen Ali Akman.

Fotospor says the Foxes are said to have sent scouts to watch the 17-year-old, who has been impressing for Bursaspor.

Akman was promoted to Bursaspor's first team following their relegation from the Turkish Super Lig last season.

The striker, who has represented his country at under-18 level, has helped his side to third in the second tier, just seven points off top spot.

Manchester City and Fenerbahce have also shown an interest in the youngster, whose contract expires in the summer of 2021.
