Manchester City have been linked in fresh new rumors to a new striker.

One may be familiar to our American audience as it is Ricardo Pepi, who DW Germany reported was on City’s list of potential strikers as they look to sign two this summer or even in January.

The young Pepi broke open to the scene this year with great performances domestically for FC Dallas in USA and for the United State's Men’s National Team. The deal could be for 10 million euros as reported and even be done this January.

He has been linked with Liverpool, and around seven other major teams in Germany and the Netherlands.

City for their part have kept mum as is usual and they hold, these things very close to the vest. Whether this gets done seems low to me, frankly. He is after all 18 and City need a ready made striker not a developmental one.

We’ll see what turns up.
