‘Would Be An Awesome Signing’ ‘No Way We’re Signing A Passenger’ Fans Discuss Claims That City Will Battle 4 PL Clubs For 60M Midfielder

Manchester City have joined the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal, Tottenham and Newcastle in pursuing Southampton midfielder James Ward-Prowse, according to reports in the English media.

The 27-year-old has been in excellent form this season, having racked up 10 goals and eight assists in 39 appearances, but it is believed the Saints would hold out for around £60m if City made an approach for their captain.

Supporters on Twitter had a mixed reaction to the story, with some believing Ward-Prowse would be an excellent addition to the squad, while others feel he isn’t good enough:

With Ilkay Gundogan expected to leave the Etihad this summer, Ward-Prowse would actually be a decent replacement, but the England international’s price tag is way too much.

Ward-Prowse may well be a very good player, and he is a world-class set-piece taker, but paying £60m for someone who is already 27 isn’t something that City would usually do. There are likely to be cheaper and younger options on the market.
