The transfer rumors continue at a ferocious pace.

After signing Nathan Ake and Ferran Torres there are some higher profile rumors we have now. Three new one’s with them possibly coming from the French League and the Serie A.

Manchester City have been rumored for many targets this Summer window.

Let’s take a look at some players recently linked to City.

Koulidou Koulibaly

The star defender is still linked with City and traction is thought to have been made. Latest reports out Italy by Alfredo Pedulla: “The purchase of Gabriel from Lille will depend on the timing of Koulibaly’s sale. If he is sold in 7-8 days, Gabriel can go to Napoli.”

That comes after reports of a 60 million euro offer by City that was laughed off by Napoli leadership. Napoli maintain they want in excess of 90 million euros. The wheel will continue to spin and we will see what happens after the Champions League run when talks figure to get intense.

Houssem Aouar

The new report states he might be sold amid interest from all over. Aouar comes in as someone who has already earned public praise from Pep Guardiola. That’s not something he does for just any player.

Aouar can play anywhere. His return of 24 goals and 24 assists in 133 games for Lyon shows his competence in front of goal, too. His clubs failure to qualify for Champions League can be City’s offering. Of course they will play each other Saturday. I could see this deal being done it makes sense. A 40 million euro price tag sounds fair.

Alex Sandro

A new report from Tuttosport has linked the Brazilian fullback in that City are ‘thinking’ about a move for Juventus full-back Alex Sandro (29), and sources close to the club have filtered out information that there is a ‘growing interest’.

A left back is of need, but given Joao Cancelo’s recent solid performances and Juventus need to grow funds for a massive spending spree, this fells quite unlikely.

Thoughts on the rumors?
