Manchester City youngsters Cole Palmer and Joshua Wilson-Esbrand have both been linked with leaving the club this summer.
Palmer, 21, made 14 Premier League appearances for last season’s treble winners and was a key part of the England side which won the under-21 European Championships earlier this month after his free kick led to the winning goal in a 1-0 victory over Spain in the final.
Cole Palmer set for Etihad Stadium exit?
According to The Athletic’s Andy Naylor, Palmer is wanted by Europa League qualifiers Brighton and Hove Albion and the Seagulls would preferably want to buy City’s number 80 on a permanent deal as opposed to a season-long loan.
As for Wilson-Esbrand, 20, Ligue 1 side Reims are set to sign the full-back on a season-long loan according to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano after spending the second half of last season at Championship club Coventry City.
