Manchester City’s reported move for Chelsea prime target DENIED

Despite reports to the contrary, Manchester City are reportedly not currently looking to sign highly-rated RB Leipzig defender Josko Gvardiol.

City have been linked with the Croatian defender throughout the transfer window but it seems unlikely the club will move for another centre-back at this juncture. The Sky Blues were eyeing potential replacements for Nathan Aké when it appeared the Dutchman was heading to Chelsea but the collapse of that transfer effectively ended their interest in any central defenders.

It is understood that The Cityzens are prioritising the signing of at least one left-back, with it looking increasingly likely the club will secure the services of Sergio Gomez. However, per David Ornstein, City are also keen to add a more ‘senior’ fullback to their ranks, alongside Gomez.

And The Daily Mail have seemingly rubbished yesterday’s reports of the Sky Blues launching a bid for the 20-year-old.

The outlet have reported that Bild’s claims are ‘inaccurate’ and that the club have not tabled any bid for the young centre-back.
