Man City ‘bid for Liverpool FC target’ Nabil Fekir and more transfer rumours

Man City have ‘bid’ for Lyon‘s creative midfielder Nabil Fekir, according to the latest transfer gossip.

Pep Guardiola looks set to strengthen his incredible City squad even further this summer in order to finally win the elusive Champions League trophy and has already been linked with a host of creative midfielders.

Portuguese pair Bruno Fernandes and Joao Felix as well as Juventus star Paulo Dybala and Real Betis’ Giovani Lo Celso have all been linked with a move to the Etihad in recent weeks and Fekir is the latest.

The Frenchman appeared to be set to move to City’s Premier League rivals Liverpool last summer but the deal fell through and now with just a year left on his contract he may now leave Lyon.

Fekir has had another fine season in Ligue 1 and also assisted the opener and scored a fine winner against City in Lyon‘s shock victory in the Champions League in September.

 

According to Catalan newspaper Sport, via SportWitness, he has plenty of suitors.

It’s claimed that Liverpool, City and Chelsea have ‘bid’ for the 25-year-old but they’ll face stiff competition from Spanish giants Real Madrid.

It’s reported that Fekir would ‘never say no’ to joining his fellow countryman Zinedine Zidane at Madrid.

 

Meanwhile, creative players don’t appear to be the only aspect of the midfield that City are interested in strengthening this summer as they’ve been linked with plenty of defensive midfielders as well.

West Ham‘s Declan Rice and Fekir’s teammate at Lyon, Tanguy Ndombele, have both been heavily touted but neither as much as Atletico Madrid’s Rodri.

City are said to be looking for competition and eventual successor to the ageing Fernandinho and the 22-year-old appears to fit the bill.

 

According to Mundo Deportivo, cited by SportWitness, Pep Guardiola is personally ‘putting a lot of effort’ to try and secure the signing.

However, it’s reported that Atleti are hesitant to lose the midfielder as they are already set to see Antoine Griezmann, Lucas Hernandez, Diego Godin, Juanfran and Filipe Luis leave this summer.

It’s claimed that this will be a ‘decisive week’ in the transfer as Atletico have offered Rodri a new contract with more pay and a higher release clause to keep him at the club.
