Manchester City will give a potential transfer hit to Swansea City and Huddersfield Town, with the Citizens going to give James McAtee to Brighton and Hove Albion.
As per SunCity could offer the 19-year-old to the Seagulls as a sweetener in a potential deal for Spanish full-back Marc Cucurella.
Cucurella is rumored to be one of City’s main transfer targets this summer, but since he will pay a fee in the region of £ 40 million, Man City are looking for ways to reduce the cost.
Because McAtee has attracted interest in a previous transfer from Brighton, a potential loan move for the youngster to AMEX Stadium is seen as one possible way.
The news came as a blow to Swansea City and Huddersfield Town, both of which have been linked with a summer loan move to McAtee.
Russell Martin is looking to improve for his side’s offensive presence, and it is hoped that the free-flowing style gives him a chance to sign the 19-year-old temporarily.

Meanwhile, with Danel Sinani set to return to Norwich City after a loan spell, Huddersfield will be looking for a creative presence to add in the middle of this summer.
McAtee scored 23 goals and registered eight assists for the 23 -year -old Manchester City team during the 2021/22 campaign.
This is undoubtedly a blow for Swansea and Huddersfield, but they must not give up.
In an initial report linking the two clubs with a move for the 19 -year -old, Alan Nixon said Forest had a better chance of getting a signature if they were not promoted to the Premier League.
This shows that Man City feel a move to a Premier League club could be a bit too quick for the youngster, and they are more than happy to move on to the Championship.
You just have to look at Phil Foden for an example of how City are consistently looking for kids, so there’s still hope for the Swans and Terriers.
