Will Hughes is targeted by Manchester City

Manchester City are keen on signing Derby County's midfield starlet Will Hughes.

Roberto Mancini sent his No 2 David Platt to make a personal check on 17-year-old Hughes in Saturday's game at Brighton.

Hughes only played 45 minutes but did enough to persuade Platt to recommend a £7m move for the youngster.

The Blues are under pressure to tie up a quick deal as Tottenham and Arsenal are also keen.

City have a policy of trying to grab the best young British talent. They paid Everton £12m in August to snap up Jack Rodwell.
