Liverpool and Manchester City are keeping tabs on Yeremy Pino

Fichajes (h/t Liverpool Echo) has reported that English giants Liverpool and Manchester City are interested in signing Villarreal forward Yeremy Pino.

The 2002 born Spanish right-footer can play on either wing and also as an inside forward on the right-hand side. At only 19, he has already won four caps for the senior national team and has two goal contributions. Last season, he contributed to 11 goal contributions from 40 appearances for the Yellow Submarines.

The youngster recently committed his future to the Spanish club until 2027, handing Villarreal the advantage in negotiations.
