Florinel Coman: Debut in national team

In October 2019, the youngster was called up for national duty. In Romania's 3-0 victory over the Faroe Islands, he debuted in the European Championship qualifier under coach Cosmin Contra. Coman is a lively winger who will be well-known to the England Under-21 team. In the summer of 2019, the Romania international was part of his country’s U-21 side. They stunned England in the U-21 European Championships. He scored twice in this game and won a penalty, despite only being on the pitch for less than half an hour.

A move to the Premier League would certainly give Coman the chance to prove that he deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as the best young player on the planet right now. The chances are that Coman would be loaned out to one of City's sister clubs should he choose the Premier League champions. Joining West Ham would give him a better chance at playing regular Premier League football, at least initially.
