Manchester City’s hunt for a new striker looks set to continue in the new year.
With the January transfer window set to open, Pep Guardiola could enter the market to sign a forward after missing out on Spurs striker Harry Kane over the summer.
And with a number of alternative targets currently being evaluated, City goalkeeper Ederson has waded in to tell his boss which player he’d most like to see at the club – and it’s one of his Brazil international teammates.
Another forward who is currently firing on all cylinders in Serie A could be set to snub interest from the club, however, while one forgotten City star could be on their way to Spanish giants Real Madrid.
Here are all the latest Man City transfer rumours.
Who should Man City sign during the January transfer window? Let us know in the comments below

Leao ‘to snub City interest’

Leao’s agent Jorge Mendes, who also represents City’s Portuguese trio Joao Cancelo, Ruben Dias and Bernardo Silva, is said to currently be involved in negotiations with Milan.
Ederson tells Brazil pal to join
City goalkeeper Ederson has named Everton ace and Brazil teammate Richarlison as the player he would most like to see join the club.
In an interview with TNT[via Sport Witness ], Ederson described his international teammate as ‘a goof, a clown’, but added that he would love to see him in a City shirt.
Asked who he would like to bring to City, Ederson replied: “I’d bring the pigeon (Richarlison’s nickname). For the chats.”
