Manchester City’s Jack Harrison has continued to impress on loan in his third-successive season with Leeds United and City must now ensure that they get a good price for the winger whilst his stock remains high.
It was anticipated that the 23-year-old would join the Whites on a permanent deal in the summer just gone but he ended up joining Leeds on loan again, with the view to making his stay a permanent one.
During his time with the Yorkshire club, Harrison has made 98 appearances, contributing 11 goals and 14 assists in all competitions (per Transfermarkt).
He was a mainstay in Marcelo Bielsa’s side last season, appearing in all 46 of their games in the Championship, in which he grabbed six goals and eight assists (per Transfermarkt).
Harrison has enjoyed an excellent start to life in the Premier League with Leeds, scoring once and assisting twice in seven appearances in the top-flight, which has seen him average an impressive 7.01 rating (per WhoScored).
This has seen his value jump to £6.3 million on Transfermarkt, the highest it has ever been, so it might be time for the Citizens to cash in on the 23-year-old, as it seems unlikely that he would be able to challenge for a starting spot in Pep Guardiola’s side.
Since joining City in January 2018, the winger has failed to make a single competitive appearance for the Etihad Stadium outfit and when you consider the options available to Guardiola in his current first-team, which includes the likes of Raheem Sterling, Bernardo Silva, Riyad Mahrez and Ferran Torres, it would perhaps be a surprise to see that change anytime soon.
Therefore, we feel that City may be best served cashing in on Harrison whilst his value remains high, with it currently looking likely that he will join Leeds United permanently once his loan deal expires.
