Some fans of Manchester City have been reacting to a post on Twitter which relayed a report regarding the club’s reported interest in a move for Robin Gosens this summer.
According to the report by TuttoMercatoWeb, Pep Guardiola is ‘trying to bring’ the £25.2m-rated Atalanta left-back to the Etihad Stadium this summer as a potential replacement for Oleksandr Zinchenko, for whom the club are said to be open to offers.
So far this season, Gosens – who can also play further up along the left flank, as well as in central midfield – has been in remarkable form over his 20 Serie A appearances for Gian Piero Gasperini’s side, scoring eight goals and providing four assists, as well as averaging a WhoScored match rating of 7.47 – ranking the 26-year-old as the fourth-best performer across all of the Italian top flight.
However, despite his impressive displays this term, after City Xtra relayed the report regarding Guardiola’s interest in Gosens on Twitter, many fans of the club appeared to be less than convinced at the prospect of their side making a move to sign the left-back this summer.
Would Gosens be a good summer signing?
So, what exactly did these Manchester City fans have to say in reaction to the report regarding Pep Guardiola’s interest in Robin Gosens?
“Would prefer Theo Hernandez.”
“As much as I’m all in favour of strengthening the squad, surely the focus should be on a new striker? I’ve read a few articles linking us with defenders but just look how well the defence is doing versus how the goals have dropped off. Strikers, not more defenders please Pep.”
“He’s not really a LB, more of a LM. Would be a good second option on the wing but we don’t really need him.”
“I don’t know about this.”
“Absolute trash. With got Zina & Mendy. Stop that nonsense.”
