Roma have enquired about taking Phil Foden on loan.
Rangers are also interested.
The Manchester City youngster has been the centre of attention in Glasgow and Rome ahead of the closing of the transfer window.
Foden, one of the bright sparks of England’s otherwise disappointing showing at the Under-21 European Championships during the summer, is finding it difficult to force his way into Pep Guardiola’s first-team.
And that has prompted late requests from Steven Gerrard and Paolo Fonseca to see if they can prise the youngster away from the Etihad.
But Guardiola admitted during the build-up to yesterday’s game at Brighton that he had knocked back attempts to take Foden.
