Man City to offer £40m for Leroy Sane; Lazio close on Milan Bisevac

hot-transfer-newsMan City to offer £40m for Leroy Sane

Manchester City plan to make Schalke starlet Leroy Sane the most expensive German footballer in history, according to Bild.

The Citizens have set their sights on the 19-year-old winger, and they appear to be readying an official proposal for his services.

Bild has learned that the Premier League giants plan to offer £40 million for the highly rated youngster, which would be the highest fee anyone ever paid for a German player if it goes through.

And while Schalke boss Horst Heldt was adamant that Sane would not be sold midway through the season, there is every chance the Miners would be forced to consider said proposal.

Leroy Sane exploded onto the biggest stage last season and he continued with impressive showings in the new campaign.

The talented footballer, who has yet to decide whether to represent Germany or France on international level, has managed 4 goals and as many assists in 17 league outings this term.

Lazio close on Milan Bisevac

French media outlet L’Equipe is reporting that Lazio are on the verge of signing Serbian defender Milan Bisevac from Lyon.

The Biancocelesti have long ago started the search for a new centre-back and it appears they have finally found their man.

L’Equipe understands that Lazio have already reached an agreement with Lyon that will see Bisevac join the club in the coming days.

The Serbia international has a deal until the end of the season at Stade Gerland, and les Gones had no option but to cash in on his services.

Milan Bisevac, 32, has had to battle a succession of injuries over the last couple of years, which is why he only made 19 league appearances in a year and a half.

He had joined Lyon from league rivals PSG in July 2012 and went on to amass 76 league outings for les Gones.

English giants eyeing Gianelli Imbula

FC Porto midfielder Gianelli Imbula is on the radar of several Premier League clubs, the latest reports have suggested.

The French footballer has struggled for form since arriving from Marseille in the summer, and the Dragons might consider selling him in January.

Stoke Sentinel claims that Stoke City are the latest side to have joined the race for the 23-year-old midfielder.

The Potters have plans to sign a holding midfielder in January and the French footballer in one of the first names on their hit-list.

The problem is that a number of top sides are keen on his services, with Chelsea, Southampton, Valencia and AC Milan are in the mix.

Stoke City have made it to the League Cup semi-finals and they are 21/10 to win the first leg against Liverpool.

£40 million would NOT be the highest transfer fee in the history of German football. Man City paid Wolfsburg £55 million for Kevin De Bruyne, and the highest fee for a German national paid was the £42.5 million Arsenal paid to Real Madrid.


For Mesut Özil, of course.


You must not have read my entire comment. Arsenal still paid more than £40 million for Özil, a German player. So unless you are referring to a German player purchased from a Bundesliga club, you are still wrong …
