Manchester City are set to try to sign teenage striker Hervin Ongenda from fellow cash-rich side Paris Saint-Germain, according to the Daily Mail.

The arrival of big-name strikers at Paris Saint-German, including Swedish international Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and the potential signings of Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo and Atletico Madrid are likely to mean Ongenda faces a tough task getting into the first-team at the Parc des Princes.

And although Manchester City are not renowned for giving youth a chance, they are keen on signing the 17-year-old forward, who was given his PSG debut in a Coupe de France win over Arras at the start of January.

Ongenda, a France under-18 international, has also been watched by scouts from Premier League Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United while in action for the PSG academy team this season.

Manchester City have yet to give their own young forward John Guidetti a Premier League debut although he has feature once in a Capital One Cup tie. The 20-year-old Swedish international, who enjoyed a successful loan spell with Feyenoord last season when he scored 20 times in 23 appearances, is set to join Sevilla on loan for the remainder of the season.
