Manchester City are closing in on the signing of Sergio Gomez from Anderlecht, according to Fabrizio Romano.
The Premier League champions have been struggling to nail down a designated left-back to feature regularly in Pep Guardiola’s team. Benjamin Mendy is unlikely to play again following the criminal process currently progressing against him. Oleksandr Zinchenko, who used to perform frequently on the left defensive flank, has joined Arsenal, leaving Kyle Walker and Joao Cancelo as the only senior fullback options – and both prefer to play on the right.
City were believed to be close to signing Marc Cucurella from Brighton and Hove Albion, but Chelsea have managed to steal the spotlight there at the eleventh hour and agree a deal with the Seagulls.
At the age of 21, Sergio Gomez is a left-back who has made a total of 50 appearances for Anderlecht. He passed through the youth ranks at Barcelona and played for Borussia Dortmund and SD Huesca, before moving to Belgium in 2021.
Excl: Manchester City are closing on Sergio Gómez deal with Anderlecht. Fee will be in excess of €10m, final details being discussed and then it will be completed. 🚨🔵 #MCFC
