Crystal Palace attacking midfielder, Eberechi Eze, could be heading to Manchester City this summer.
City want Eze, a player of Nigerian descent to join from Palace in the remaining few days of the transfer window.
The Cityzens have shifted their attention to the Crystal Palace attacking midfielder after a move for West Ham’s Lucas Paqueta broke down.
The Premier League and Champions League holders are considering other options as they look for back-up to the injured Kevin De Bruyne.
According to the Daily Mail, Eze has emerged as one of their top targets.
City scouts have returned with glowing reports on the 25-year-old.
The Manchester-based outfit is now set to make an official bid for the player.
Pep Guardiola’s side was willing to offer £85million to sign Paqueta from West Ham before the deal broke down.
Eze is valued at around £70m, with two years left on his contract at Selhurst Park.
