Manchester City transfer news: £30m Arsenal target dropped from Champions League squad

Wilfried Bony’s future at Manchester City has been cast in doubt after the newly appointed Pep Guardiola omitted the Senegal international from the squad which faced Steaua Bucharest in the Champions League qualification second-leg.

The powerful striker is yet to feature for City under Guardiola this season and the Spanish tactician has made it clear he has no place for Bony in the team.

Arsenal have been linked with a £30 million move for Bony according to the Daily Star as Arsene Wenger looks to bolster his attacking options.

Meanwhile West Ham also want to sign Bony on loan, head coach Slaven Bilic has confirmed interest according to the BBC.  The Hammers may however, only be able to sign Bony on a six-month loan deal according to the Telegraph.

“He is a good player,” Bilic added. “He is an option because he plays in the position where, even before the injuries, we tried to sign a player.

“We have a couple of players we are trying to do a deal with.”

Manchester City match day squad which faced Steaua Bucharest:

Manchester City: Hart, Maffeo, Stones, Kolarov, Clichy, Fernando, Toure, Delph, Nolito, Navas, Iheanacho
Subs: Gunn, Adarabioyo, Angelino, Fernandinho, Aguero, Sterling, Silva
