A commanding midfielder, Nmecha has scored three goals in five games in the Premier League 2 this season.

What has Lukas Nmecha said about him?
The on-loan City forward spoke about his brother in his Lancashire Evening Post column.”My younger brother Felix is also at City and he turned 18 recently,” he said.
“At the moment Felix has chosen to play for Germany at international level, while I’ve chosen England. We have both got time to decide to change if needs be but we are both happy with what we are doing.
“People ask if there is a bit of brotherly rivalry between us but there isn’t really. We get on well and want to see one another do as well as possible. Felix is just under two years younger than me so we are not too far apart in our development as players.”
