Manchester City talent Carlos Borges racked up astonishing numbers this past season amid links with West Ham United.

Carlos Borges is on the radar of West Ham United after producing sensational displays for Manchester City’s Under-23’s.

City are still on cloud nine right now having clinched a treble, winning the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup.

Pep Guardiola’s men are still looking to improve though and that means comings and goings will take place this summer.

City may look to sell some of their young players, as they have with Gavin Bazunu, Romeo Lavia, Darko Gyabi and Samuel Edozie in recent times.

Carlos Borges could be the next to go after posting ridiculous numbers for City’s Under-23’s this past season.

The Portuguese winger joined City from the Sporting ranks way back in 2015 and has now showcased his immense talent.

Borges, 19, was in outrageous form for City this past season, racking up 21 goals and 11 assists in 24 Premier League 2 outings.

Add in EFL Trophy and UEFA Youth League games and Borges finished the campaign with 29 goals and 18 assists across 33 games in all competitions.

Borges won’t be near the City first team despite those numbers and you couldn’t really blame him for wanting to leave.

The Daily Mail reported in April that West Ham are one team who would like to sign Borges this summer.

Hammers head of recruitment Rob Newman was formerly in the Manchester City recruitment setup and will know Borges very well.

West Ham will want to add more goal threats to David Moyes’ squad and Borges would fit the bill.

They aren’t alone in the race though as ESPN claimed last week that Nottingham Forest are now keen on Borges too.

More Premier League clubs should be taking notice of Borges given his unbelievable season in Premier League 2.

West Ham’s European success may make them favourites, but murmurs of Forest interest should spark the Hammers into life.
