Report: 25 y/o ace Guardiola said has 'rare talents' wants Premier League move; Man City were linked with a transfer in January
Kingsley Coman wants a transfer to the Premier League after rejecting a new contract offer from Bayern Munich.
According to Sky in Germany, the winger wanted similar terms to teammate Leroy Sane. However, his desire to play in the English top-flight is also a factor in his decision.
The France international feels underappreciated at the Allianz Arena.
The attacker was linked with a move to north London back in 2018 when Unai Emery took over from Arsene Wenger.
However, more recently, the Citizens were considered an interested party at the start of this year.
Pep Guardiola claimed Coman has ‘rare talents.’
Coman Transfer: Arsenal don’t require further wingers, whilst Manchester City could do with replacement for outgoing stars
Arsenal seem pretty stacked in the wide areas. Meanwhile Manchester City could well do with Coman as a transfer replacement for outgoing stars.
The emergences of Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe and Nicolas Pepe’s ressurgence means the Gunners have talent out wide.
It would seem pretty foolish to spend a vast amount of money on the wide areas. The number 10 position is a far more crucial area that requires urgent attention.
However, the situation couldn’t be more different up north.
The likes of Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva have been linked with moves away from the Etihad Stadium.
Should the duo leave, it would leave Pep Guardiola needing further reinforcement.
Coman would be an outstanding addition especially given the fact he played under the Spaniard.
And his contract situation means he’s likely to cost less than expected if he had more than two years on his deal.
Coman’s desire to move to England is likely to attract mass interest. And with his profile, age and ability, he shouldn’t be short of offers.
