As per El Universal, Manchester City are said to be looking for €18m (£15.6m) to part ways with Southampton target Yangel Herrera.
Price tag set for Herrera
The Saints have been linked with a move for Herrera (Manchester Evening News), who is currently on loan at Granada in La Liga.
Now, it has been revealed the Venezuela international is valued at €18m (£15.6m) by the Citizens.
Herrera has been with Granada since the start of the 2019/20 campaign and has been an important part of their success. He has managed 75 appearances for the club, scoring 10 goals and providing five assists (Transfermarkt). He helped Granada finish seventh in the table last term and reach the Copa Del Rey semi-finals while this time out, they have made it to the quarter-finals of the Europa League, although they do face an uphill battle to qualify for the next round as they trail Manchester United 2-0 after the first leg.
Would you like to sign Yangel Herrera?
Given his performances in Spain, Pep Guardiola and the Citizens are said to be considering introducing him into the City fold from next term onwards (Goal.com). However, should they decide he does not quite have the ability to perform at the level required, Southampton may have the chance to sign a player racking up a lot of high level experience at the age of 23.
In other news, Southampton fans rage at this club deal.
