Summer spending starts

Thaksin Shinawatra last week insisted that Manchester City need more midfielders but today his club strengthened its strikeforce by agreeing a £20m deal for Brazilian forward Jô, guardian.co.uk understands.

No official word from the club as yet on this, but it has begun to be reported around most of the major media outlets and would seem to suggest talk of Sven departing in the summer can be banished once and for all.

He has been linked with us previously (along with most strikers around the world) but again fits the bill of most recent purchases by being a young talent with plenty of upside.

Whilst some strikers - Dickov, Samaras and Mpenza will be on the way out come the end of the season we will still be left with plenty of talent in attack and given Benjani's impressive performance yesterday, could point to us playing with two up front come the start of next season.
