The latest round-up of transfer news from Manchester City, including news on Raheem Sterling, Serge Gnabry and Marc Cucurella.
Manchester City announced the arrival of Kalvin Phillips on Monday, bringing their summer signings up to three this window.
Meanwhile, Gabriel Jesus and youngster Darko Gyabi departed on a busy day for the club.
But there’s plenty more transfer deals to be completed by the club, both incomings and outgoings.
We’ve rounded up the latest rumours surrounding the Premier League champions.
Chelsea moving closer to transfer
They add Thomas Tuchel is ‘determined’ to complete a deal for the winger, with one source claiming that a transfer is ‘close’.
Sky also believe a fee in the region of £50m would ensure a deal is completed, with Sterling likely to get a pay increase from his current contract at the Etihad.
As per Jack Gaughan of the Daily Mail, City are denying rumours they’re interested in signing Serge Gnabry.
Various reports at the weekend claimed the Premier League champions were keen on recruiting the Bayern Munich winger, with Fabrizio Romano writing in his CaughtOffside column that City had sent scouts to ‘monitor him several times’.
However, the Italian journalist also claimed no offer had been submitted for the former Arsenal man.
Meanwhile, Gaughan responded: “Club saying no,” when asked on Twitter if Gnabry was being lined up to replace Sterling.
Other targets in mind
While City wrapped up the signing of Phillips on Monday, that certainly does not seem to be the end of their business.
A report in the i claim ‘interest has been retained in Brighton left-back Marc Cucurella and there are other attacking additions being worked on’.
They add Phillips has been given no guarantees of a starting spot at his new club, and there’s a realisation that Rodri will be difficult to shift from his role at the base of midfield
