The defending champions England have planned to recruit a new left-back.
The Etihad Stadium team went through a very busy transfer period. They have parted ways with a number of stars such as Fernandinho, Raheem Sterling, Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko, and have added Julian Alvarez, Erling Haaland and Kalvin Phillips.
Currently, Pep Guardiola wants to bring in one more left-back as a backup plan for Joao Cancelo. Marc Cucurella is the name that Man City has pursued in recent times. The former Barca star created 38 chances in the 2021/22 Premier League, second only to Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson. On the defensive front, the 23-year-old defender has 2.73 tackles/match.
However, when The Citizens hesitated before the £ 50 million price offered by Brighton, Chelsea took this opportunity to negotiate and is said to have reached a personal agreement with the 24-year-old defender. The Blues currently just need to find common ground with Brighton on the price.
Gomez is a target for Man City.
The green half of Manchester, therefore, must switch to another option. According to The Athletic, Man City are in talks to sign Anderlecht’s Sergio Gomez. The 21-year-old defender has just had a brilliant season, contributing 7 goals and 15 assists in 49 appearances in all competitions. Gomez is currently valued at 10 million euros by Transfermarkt.
Gomez began his career at Barcelona and regularly featured in the Spain Under-21 team, scoring four goals in five games. The star born in 2000 can also play as a midfielder, promising to give Pep Guardiola many options to arrange the squad.
