Man City add two shock Premier League names to transfer wish-list after pulling out of move for West Ham star Paqueta | The Sun

MANCHESTER CITY have added two Premier League stars to their transfer wishlist after pulling out of a move for Lucas Paqueta.

The treble winners had agreed an £80million deal in principle with West Ham for the Brazilian but a move fell through following his alleged breach of betting rules.

Man City have already signed Mateo Kovacic and Josko Gvardiol this summer and also closing in on the signing of Jeremy Doku from Rennes.

However, Pep Guardiola is not finished adding to his squad just yet with a couple more names being added to his list.

This is because he is keen on signing a player to cover for the injured Kevin De Bruyne who is expected to be on the sidelines until the end of the year.

According to the Daily Mail, City are considering a swoop for Crystal Palace star Eberechi Eze.

The Eagles playmaker has been attracting interest from across the Premier League following his impressive performances in South London.

The report claims that Eze, 25, has been on City's radar for six months and they were "impressed" by his ability to "control of games".

It is also suggested that Palace is expected to demand up to £70m to consider selling Eze.

However, they could be more susceptible to a deal as Michael Olise signed a new contract to stay at the club.

City have also been linked with a move for Wolves ace Matheus Nunes.

The Athletic has claimed that the Citizens are "exploring a deal" to sign the midfielder.

Nunes, 24, only joined Wolves last summer on a five-year contract with an option with a sixth despite interest from Liverpool.

And City could take advantage of Wolves' financial situation as the club are trying to fit within FFP guidelines.
