Manchester City monitoring Arsenal midfield target

Published Add your comment

Manchester City are monitoring Arsenal midfielder target Geoffrey Kondogbia, according to reports.

The Times claims Citizens director of football Txiki Begiristain is lining up transfer targets to ‘reshape the squad’ in the summer.

And, Sevilla star Kondogbia is among the players on the Manchester City radar, having enjoyed an impressive debut season in La Liga.

The French starlet joined Los Rojiblancos from Lens last summer, and has represented his country at a variety of youth levels.

Manchester City are eager to bring the player to the Premier League, despite not having a new manager appointed at the Etihad Stadium.

Roberto Mancini was given his marching orders following the FA Cup final defeat, and whilst Malaga boss Manuel Pelegrini is favourite to replace the Italian, he’s yet to be appointed.

Arsenal, meanwhile, were linked with a move for the player last month.

Indeed, manager Arsene Wenger was questioned on his interest, but attempted to play the speculation down because ‘everyone’s after him’.

The Gunners chief told The Sun: "I don't really want to talk about Kondogbia too much because everyone's after him at the moment. When you ask 'Are you also interested?' what do you expect me to say?"
It all means a Premier League transfer battle could ensue this summer.
