Will Man City Beat Spurs And Liverpool To Another Forward?
Manchester City have already moved quickly this window to pinch Wilfried Bony while their rivals dithered and now it looks as if they might act with similar decisiveness to land another forward.
The Daily Mail reports that City are ready to bid for the Southampton striker Jay Rodriguez, who has been attracting attention from Spurs and Liverpool. Rodriguez has been out since last April with a cruciate ligament injury but the Saints are still asking £20m for his services.
Coming back from such a serious injury, Rodriguez represents a gamble for whoever buys him and perhaps Spurs and Liverpool are right to be cautious. Here’s the man in action before injury disrupted his career.
