All the latest news, views and transfer rumours from the Etihad…
The England international was strongly linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur during the last transfer window, but the latest claim is that Manuel Pellegrini is keen on taking the 25-year-old to the Etihad.
In other news, Jovetic could miss City’s league match against Arsenal at the weekend.
The Guardian reports that the striker has picked up a hamstring injury and could be forced to sit out the match at the Emirates Stadium.
It would be a big blow considering the fine form Jovetic has been in so far this season.
And finally, the Manchester Evening News has published the results of a poll asking City fans a number of questions regarding the new campaign.
It includes the fact that 26% of those taking part in the survey believed that Alvaro Negredo’s departure would prove to be the most keenly felt, ahead of Micah Richards, Javi Garcia and Joleon Lescott.
While 63% of those polled believe a striker is City’s priority in the January transfer window.
So perhaps that Rodriguez link is not as far-fetched as first thought...
