Man City line up goalkeeper signing amid rumours of Saudi interest in Ederson

Posted by

Manchester City are exploring options in the transfer market to make their team even stronger.

Pep Guardiola guided the Sky Blues to a fourth consecutive Premier League title after finishing two points above Arsenal.

The domestic dominance of Man City is unprecedented but Guardiola has no intention to stop.

He is looking to sign a new goalkeeper after reports emerged of the Saudi Pro League targeting Man City goalkeeper Ederson.

Al-Ittihad are looking to sign the Premier League goalkeeper according to the Daily Mail, who has contributed hugely to the success of the Sky Blues.

Man City are interested in signing Werder Bremen goalkeeper Michael Zetterer, according to German news source Sport Bild.

As per the report, the Premier League giants are preparing for the potential departure of either Ederson or second choice goalkeeper Stefan Ortega.

Man City are not expected to lose both of their goalkeepers in the same transfer window.

It appears that Ortega may be leaving, while the Brazilian will likely stay with the team for another year.

Michael Zetterer to Man City?

Zetterer’s consistent performances throughout the years have won him a key spot in the Bundesliga team.

In 27 appearances last season, he conceded 37 goals while managing to keep six clean sheets.

Zetterer’s contract with Werder Bremen is said to have a release clause that is scheduled to expire this month. It hasn’t been disclosed how much the supposed clause is worth, though.

After signing Josko Gvardiol from RB Leipzig in the last summer transfer window, it appears that Guardiola may revisit the Bundesliga as a summer hunting ground.

German goalkeeper’s playing style is ideal for Man City

Zetterer is an accomplished player who has become a leading contender for the Man City goalkeeping position.

He can block shots from a distance and up close thanks to his quick reflexes and powerful hands.

Additionally, the 28-year-old’s passing accuracy and composure will help Guardiola’s playing style at the Etihad Stadium.
