After watching their pursuit for Marc Cucurella slip away from their fingertips, Manchester City have quickly looked in another direction and entered negotiations with Anderlecht left-back, Sergio Gomez.
The Spanish player made 39 appearances for the Belgian club last season, scoring 6 goals and assisting 11 times in that period. Like Cucurella, Sergio Gomez was also trained in Barcelona academy after joining them from rivals, Espanyol.
Gomez is able to function also as am attacking midfielder, despite his 5ft 7in height. He has praised Manchester City fullback, Joao Cancelo in recent times, and compared himself to the Portuguese superstar.
“João Cancelo is someone I look up to, I see similar characteristics of myself in him.”
Manchester City may be desperate to seal a deal for a left-back quickly after missing out on Cucurella. Although there are rumours concerning interest in a number of other players, Sergio Gomez has been confirmed to be in negotiations with the English champions.
