City Summary – August 19: City to up their bid for Evans, Nasri off to Turkey, £70m offer readied for Alexis Sanchez

It’s time to catch up on today’s news – here’s your City Summary:

City are ready to go as high as £70million to land Alexis Sanchez, according to one of the Sunday papers.

City have identified three forward players as key targets for this season but any deal would prove very difficult to pull off.

Samir Nasri has reportedly agreed to join Turkish side Antalyaspor on a 2-year deal.

City have alternatives to Jonny Evans but are expected to make an improved offer of £25m for the defender in a deal that could go down to deadline day.

If it doesn’t pan out, Ben Gibson could be next on the list.

Tony Pulis is keen for Evans to stay at West Brom. Some City fans feel the same, and two of our writers have had their say on this mooted deal.

Stoke have bid for Eliaquim Mangala but the Frenchman isn’t keen on joining them whilst Inter prefer to loan the player with an option to buy. City are keen to sell.

Fernandinho sees Gabriel Jesus as a real talent, emulating the ‘true’ Ronaldo.

City have had a bid rejected for Fenerbahçe youngster Oguz Kagan but expect to return with an improved offer.

Pablo Maffeo started his first La Liga game today for Girona after the youngster impressed against City in the friendly earlier in the week. He played the full 90 minutes in their 2-2 draw against Atlético Madrid.
