According to reports, Manchester City is getting close to signing left-back Sergio Gomez from RSC Anderlecht.

Journalist and transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano recently commented on the subject in a tweet.

Sergio Gómez is headed to Manchester City, exclusions made. established a verbal understanding with Anderlecht. The fee will be higher—probably closer to €15 million—and will be agreed upon soon.

Gomez “has high possibilities to be part of City team,” Romano continued. “If not, he will be loaned to La Liga side Girona.”

Along with Oleksandr Zinchenko joining Arsenal, Marc Cucurella was also passed over by the Citizens until he eventually signed with Chelsea despite being linked with a move to City.

This demonstrates why, should Gomez choose to remain at the Etihad Stadium rather than being loaned out to Girona, as Romano said, the Manchester club has been attempting to sign him in order to bolster their left-back position.

The fact that a new left-back is acquired before the summer transfer window ends also makes it safe to assume that Pep Guardiola will be ecstatic.

The Spanish player, who had previously played in Barcelona’s youth ranks, joined Borussia Dortmund in 2018 before relocating to Belgium last summer.

Last season, the 21-year-old made 49 appearances in all competitions, recording seven goals and 15 assists along the way.

In fact, with 34 league matches under his belt in the previous season, the full-back produced 284 more crosses than any other player at the Belgian club while also ranking third in the club in terms of interceptions and fourth in terms of successful tackles (32).

This demonstrates his potential for offensive danger and defensive value when he isn’t in possession of the ball.

Jacek Kulig, a football talent scout, has praised Gomez as a “superb” player. Gomez, who might now be moving to the Etihad for €15 million (£12.6 million), according to Romano, has the talent to be a valuable player for City’s squad rather than being loaned out.

The Premier League champions should keep the left-back in the senior squad going forward if they manage to sign him, and they should see whether he can be as effective for them as he was for Anderlecht last season. Guardiola would be happy to add more depth to his squad whether he plays for City this season or the supporters have to wait until the following one.
