Man City bid for Portsmouth striker Benjani

Manchester City have searched entire mainland Europe for a striker that manager Sven-Goran Eriksson so desperately requires but all the effort has been in vain. Now the highflying Premiership club is looking closer to home for a striker.

To come to the point directly, they are looking at Portsmouth’s Benjani to bolster their striker force as the Manchester Blues strive for a UEFA Cup place in the league. The Daily Mail reports that Man City have already made a £5 million offer to Portsmouth for their in-form Zimbabwean striker. Although Pompey haven’t decided on the sale yet, they could just accept the offer should they find some quick replacement for the player. Portsmouth too have a chance of finishing in a UEFA Cup place.

Oh, another bit of Man City transfer news They have also held talks with Valencia’s out-of-favor striker Miguel Angel Angulo but with Valencia president Juan Soler not eager to let the fall out boys change clubs this month, City might just have to impose the Benjani offer.
