From David Ornstein: Manchester City’s January transfer window plans revealed



| Last Updated:


Manchester City’s intentions ahead of the upcoming January transfer window have now been detailed by a new report, with the market reopening next week.

Various reports from across Europe have been offering details on a number of Manchester City first-team players and possible exits, with both Kalvin Phillips and Sergio Gomez the latest to have been linked with moves away.

The England international midfielder in particular has been at the centre of a transfer battle in the media between Juventus and Newcastle United, with the player open to the idea of an Etihad Stadium exit with a view towards securing more consistent game time.

However, while first-team exits could take place in the coming weeks, arrivals into Pep Guardiola’s squad for the second-half of the season may to be seen, with a new report offering details into the plans from transfer bosses in the way of arrivals.

That is according to the information of David Ornstein reporting for The Athletic, who reports that no senior signings are planned for Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City first-team squad during the approaching January transfer window.

While first-team arrivals may not be expected, Etihad Stadium transfer bosses are hard at work looking towards the longer-term future, as they aim to secure the services of one of Argentina’s brightest emerging talents.

River Plate and Argentina Under-17 World Cup captain, Claudio Echeverri is moving closer towards an Etihad Stadium switch in the coming weeks, but is expected to remain on loan at his current club until the summer.

That arrangement would replicate the deal agreed between Manchester City and River Plate for Julian Alvarez two years ago, with an assessment expected to be made on the future of Echeverri during the summer market.
