Maximo Perrone, Argentina: Manchester City are no mugs in the South American transfer market, as their acquisition of Julián Álvarez shows. The striker became a world champion months after moving to City from Argentina and Maximo Perrone will be looking to do the same. The 20-year-old midfielder joined from Vélez Sarsfield in January and has made two first-team appearances under Pep Guardiola. A composed presence in front of the defence, the left-footed Perrone is an elegant passer who traditionally played above his age group in Argentina.
