According to a report in the Daily Telegraph, Gael Clichy is a £7 million target for Manchester City.
The Citizens have struggled to find a suitable long-term candidate for the left-back position since their takeover by Sheikh Mansour Bin Zayed Al Nahyan. Wayne Bridge was signed for £10 million from Chelsea in 2009, Alexander Kolarov cost £16 million from Lazio while Joleon Lescott’s move from Everton cost upwards of £22million.
Clichy, 25, is thought to be stalling on a new deal at the Emirates despite Arsene Wenger publically stating his desire to keep hold of the energetic left-back. Leighton Baines and Jose Enrique have been tipped as possible successors with reservations lingering over the long-term suitability of young duo Kieran Gibbs and Armand Traore.
