Man City are keeping tabs on Georgia striker dubbed the new Georgi Kinkladze.

Napoli striker Khvicha Kvaratskhelia has a growing group of admirers after a stellar first three months in Italy, with Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain among them.

Today, City take a keen interest in them – and the Kvaratskhelia are fond of them because of Kinkladze, who is a cult figure for his unforgettable stay in the 1990s.

But full time, Kovacic had stripped down to his pants, socks and boots.

The midfielder raced confidently up the pitch and into the tunnel, where he passed Man Utd legend Schmeichel.

The iconic stopper looked Kovacic up and down, before taking a second look and laughing.

But instead, he was picked up by Boro.

Palace are also considering a return for their former defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka, 24.
