Manchester City are keeping tabs on Lisandro Magallan the18-year-old defedner who plays for Gimnasia La Plata in Argentina.
Magallan is fast emerging as one of the brightest prospects in the country after nailing down a regular firs-team berth after his team were relegated last term.
Reports in Argentina have claimed that City scout Attilio Lombardo has been monitoring the teenager’s progress closely and has been so impressed that he has recommended him to manager Roberto Mancini.

And City could be tempted to make their move soon as Gimnasia would not be able to demand a high fee for the centre-back.
