Manchester City have been in tremendous form so far this season, and are yet to lose a match, having played 15 matches in all competitions and scored 45 goals in the process, at an average of 3 goals per game.
Boss Pep Guardiola has masterminded his troops, especially in the midfield, with the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Fernandinho, and David Silva seeming unplayable at times, even against strong oppositions like Liverpool and Arsenal.
However, amidst their strong squad, Guardiola is planning to make a move for highly-rated Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic when the transfer window gets into business in January, as per CalcioMercato.
Reports claim that the Eagles have slammed a price tag of £94m on the Serbian.
City will have to battle with inter-city rivals Manchester United, Serie A giants Juventus, and big-spending Paris Saint-Germain, as all these giants seem to share an equal amount of interest in Milinkovic-Savic, who has netted 4 goals and provided 2 assists in a span of 15 games this season.
With the likes of Silva and Fernandinho into their thirties, the 22-year-old Spain-born talent can be a long-term successor for one of the big names at the Etihad.
After impressing at Belgian club Genk, the former Under-20 World Cup star moved to Serie A in 2015, where he made a name for himself by getting into manager Simone Inzaghi’s first team and establishing himself well at his current club.
