Manchester City has reportedly added a young goalkeeper to its squad.

Gavin Bazunu, 16, would join City from Irish side Shamrock Rovers.

The 6-foot-2 Bazunu has allowed just two goals in six matches with Rovers, both of those coming in Europa League qualifying.

In League of Ireland play, he went 4-for-4 in clean sheets. Sky Sports says the fee is around $500,000, and that both Spurs and Chelsea wanted to add the youngster.

With Claudio Bravo injured for the next couple months, Bazunu joins Ederson, Daniel Grimshaw, and Arijanet Muric on Man City’s depth chart.

Bazunu is still listed on the Rovers’ web site as a First Team backstop.
