Manchester City have announced the signing of talented youngster Emilio Lawrence from Everton. A number of clubs were interested to sign him, but he has chosen to join the Sky Blues in spite of all other offers.
The England and Scotland youth international follows the likes of Liam Delap, Ben Knight and Luke Mbete, all of whom are now part of the City academy.

The attacking midfielder spent ten years at Everton before deciding to make the move. During his time with the Toffees, he has scored seven goals in 28 appearances at Everton, alongside seven times in the Under-18s Premier League this term.
The 17-year-old is now officially a part of the defending champions of England. And he is expected to train with the U23 side of the academy that produced the likes of Phil Foden, Cole Palmer, Rico Lewis and more. As of yet, there is no confirmation whether he will be sent out on loan for getting more first team experience.
After the signing of Emilio Lawrence, City are planning to sign Chelsea’s Jude Soonsup-Bell, whose contract is expiring at the end of the current season.
