However, Kutucu has stated that he would like to remain in Bundesliga with his contract set to expire in 2022 (h/t The Sun).

Kutucu’s phenomenal season with the U19 side

The 19-year-old endured a wonderful season with Schalke’s U19 side, which earned him a promotion to the main team later.

Overall, Kutucu racked up 20 goals and 5 assists across all competitions, along with 3 goals and an assist with the senior team.

He also had a similar amount of success in the 2017/18 campaign, scoring 12 goals and providing 8 assists for the youth squad.

Kutucu had his initial breakthrough with Schalke’s U17 side, adding up a goal and assists tally of 18. He is a traditional striker while also being able to play as a second striker or a winger.

With the Argentine entering the twilight of his career, Pep Guardiola has an option off-shelf called Gabriel Jesus, who has already shown everyone that he can emulate the success of the former.

The 22-year-old would be an indisputable starter in near future while the Cityzens can still fortify their attacking line-up by adding the Turkish teenager, who can evolve into a big player under the tutelage of the Spanish manager.

Etihad is already flooding with young talents like Phil Foden, Leroy Sane and Zinchenko; Kutucu can be the next on the list and he is definitely worth the wait.

Final Verdict

Citizens don’t have to opulent in the on-going transfer window, having already a sturdy line-up to replicate their glory in the upcoming season. Instead, they should look out for signings like Kutucu to preserve the club’s long-term future.
