Leeds United are set to sign Manchester City youngster Lukas Nmecha on a season-long loan according to The Yorkshire Evening Post.
The 19-year-old striker has only made two Premier League appearances for City, both coming via the bench last season, but he is considered one of the brightest young strikers in English football.
The England U21 international played a significant role in his club’s pre-season tour, and scored his first goal for the club in a friendly against Bayern Munich.
According to the report, Pep Guardiola is willing to help out his friend Marcelo Bielsa by sending the youngster on loan, in addition to City’s Jack Harrison who has already joined Leeds from City.

With Kemar Roofe getting off to a great start against Stoke City and Patrick Bamford ready to make his mark for the club, Bielsa’s striking options would be looking very healthy indeed with the arrival of Nmecha.
The youngster can also feature on the wing and with a long season ahead, he will certainly get the game time even though there is healthy competition for places.
