    15 year old son of former City midfielder Claudio, Gio Reyna has been tearing up trees for NYCFC's youth set-up and is now being linked to a free transfer to Europe, to which Claudio said he wouldn't stand in his way.
    He's not explicitly linked with City here, but it's only a matter of time considering his connections, and after the way the Jack Harrison transfer went down, I could definitely see this happening.

    Nice touch that he's named after Kinky too

    Good. Sign him and bring him over. Hopefully he will go the way of Christian Pulisic and be away from the eyes of our stateside coaches for the next few years. Man. What a mess.

    I've watched him a couple of times, he's pretty tall, predominantly a 10. Setpiece specialist, very good technique with both feet but not that strong/doesn't know how to shield the ball, have some question marks if he's a bit one-paced. One of their best products for sure.

    Hard to jude on the video of 1 goal. I'm positive though towards trying to develop US talent in Europe as there is a lot of untapped talent and likely potential for scouting in the future.
