Branded as ‘excellent’ by Kevin Campbell after his heroics at Wembley Stadium, the Englishman has been targeted by Brighton, who aim to sign him on a permanent deal, as per a report in late July.

“I don’t know, I’ll have to see what the plan is next season. If I’m here, or I’m elsewhere…I’m not 100 per cent sure [where I’ll be], I don’t know. I’ll have to speak to [City to] see what the plan is.”

Cole Palmer should be kept at all costs

If Manchester City needed a sign from the universe to pinpoint the ideal replacement for Riyad Mahrez, the sublime curler from the academy talent against Arsenal was enough to suggest why the comparisons between both players have always been made.

In a squad that lacks a natural winger, the Wythenshawe-born technician is the only one that can count himself as a wide player and to add to that, he profiles almost exactly like Mahrez.

Even if a more established name is brought in by City, Palmer should be contesting for starts in a majority of games, as his eye for goal, silky dribbling and creative threat makes him an additional spark in his side’s frontline alongside Haaland.
