Manchester City are said to have entered the race for Kingsley Coman. City are keen to add more top class attackers to the squad and Kingsley Coman is reported to have joined the list. Chelsea would like to include Callum Hudson-Odoi, however believe is unlikely that new Bayern manager, Julian Nagelsmann would be interested would be interested.

James Pearce was very quick to dismiss the claims that Liverpool were ever interested in Coman saying Kingsley Coman was 'never a target' for Liverpool, leaving only Chelsea and Man City being the main teams looking at Kingsley Coman as a target.

Coman is a big admirer of Man City boss, Pep Guardiola:

"Pep Guardiola is the most influential coach I've had.” - Kingsley Coman [2020].

Manchester City have an abundance of talent who can operate in an advance position on the right, Bernardo Silva, Ferran Torres and Riyad Mahrez. This may prove to be fierce competition for a possible incoming Coman.

Though, it has been reported that Bernardo has been unsettled for a couple of seasons and is seeking a move with interest from both Barcelona and Atletico Madrid, which could prove difficult sue to Barcelona's economical crisis. Ferran Torres has been a revelation in his first year in the Premier League with a creditable 13 goals and 3 assists at City. That leaves Mahrez who recently pledged his allegiance to City.

As Manchester City’s priority is a striker to replace club legend Sergio Aguero and Bayern’s asking price for Kingsley Coman likely to be in the region of £90 million and it will be dependent on City's willingness to splash some cash for another attacker.
