Manchester City winger Samuel Edozie is edging closer to a move to Bayer Leverkusen, with a deal expected to be announced soon.
Edozie began his career with Championship side Millwall, but moved to Manchester City before making a first-team appearance. Since joining Pep Guardiola’s side, Edozie has also failed to play for the Manchester club.
The 19-year-old winger is now edging closer to a move away from the club, with Fabrizio Romano reporting in the tweet below that Bayer Leverkusen have agreed a deal to bring him to Germany, which is set to be announced soon.

Edozie is set to make a similar move to another former Manchester City player, Jadon Sancho. The England international and current Manchester United winger struggled to break into the first-team at the Etihad, so made the brave decision to move to Germany to pursue first-team opportunities.
Sancho’s move worked out immensely, performing exceptionally for Dortmund and securing a move to one of the biggest clubs in the world.
It’s not fully worked out for Sancho at Manchester United, but he’s a regular in their side and Edozie will be hoping to follow in his footsteps this summer.
