Divine Mukasa: Profile, playing style, scouting report
Manchester City set to sign West Ham academy player Divine Mukasa
Divine Mukasa, a midfielder for the England under-17 team, is expected to join Manchester City after leaving West Ham United, according to Italian transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano.
A long-term agreement has been reached, and its formal seal is anticipated by Friday.
Mukasa has been sought by Man City as they want to develop their junior teams for the future after seeing him showcase his abilities in the West Ham academy.
In July, the young sensation formally announced his departure from West Ham, joining the club’s exodus of Harrison Ashby, Sonny Perkins, Aji Alese, and Jamal Baptiste.

Mukasa is a talented young man who is at the top of his game. The 15-year-old struck a goal for the West Ham under-18 team during our 2-0 victory over Arsenal, which ensured our young players would win the league.
The adolescent won’t be wearing the fabled claret and blue for the first team, which is disappointing for Hammers.
West Ham United U18s won the 2022/23 U18 Premier League South championship on Saturday with a 2-0 victory over Arsenal, with Divine Mukasa playing a significant role in the triumph.
Mukasa performed well for West Ham’s U15 and U16 teams before being promoted to the U18 and U21 teams last season.
He was a crucial part of the U18 team’s league and FA Youth Cup victories and Man City will be hoping that their choice to buy him benefits in the long run.
In the summer, face-to-face meetings with the kid and his agent were held by a number of clubs, including Newcastle United, who were interested in signing him.
They gave him a tour of the club’s Benton training complex and St. James’ Park, but he decided to join the Premier League winners.
The playing style of Divine Mukasa
The offensive midfielder, who is 15 years old, has excellent technique and a strong engine for somebody so youthful.
Mukasa possesses all the essential elements to continue on and develop into a true star in the game. And I have no doubts that he will succeed at the very top if he keeps working hard and applying himself appropriately off the pitch.
