Man City representatives have been in Italy on a scouting mission – report

The Man City fans in the Transfer Tavern are expecting a few more signings to be made by Pep Guardiola. The Spaniard spent big over the summer, with the likes of Kyle Walker and Benjamin Mendy coming in, but with improvements still needed, that spending is unlikely to stop anytime soon. In recent years, most of the club’s money has been spent over the summer months, but could that change this season? Well, if Transfer Market Web is to be believed, the club are already looking at potential signings with January looming.

According to Transfer Market Web, Man City scouts were in attendance to watch Lazio ace Sergej Milinkovic-Savic in action against Bologna on Wednesday, with the midfielder impressing for his club. He bagged a goal as his side recorded a 2-1 victory in the Italian top flight.

Any prospective move remains some way off, but it does appear as though Man City are interested. Guardiola has spent wisely since moving to the Etihad, and his mere interest in a player is enough to get the fans in the Transfer Tavern on his side. Whether a deal happens, though, remains to be seen.

Landlord’s Verdict

A move is likely to demand a massive financial outlay as Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is one of Lazio’s best players, but the Citizens haven’t been afraid to spend as of late.

A central midfielder by trade, he’s a fantastic dribbler and tackler, whilst his goalscoring quality was on display in Lazio’s last game.

With Man City lacking depth in the heart of the midfield, he’d certainly be a good fit.
