Eriksson wants Newcastle's Owen at Man City

To celebrate his arrival at Manchester City, Sven Goran Eriksson wants to bring Newcastle United striker to Eastlands.

The Daily Express says new owner Thaksin Shinawatra has let the cat out of the bag by revealing they would look to bring in "two strikers and two midfielders" and that "each coach [candidate] has his connections and wants to bring in players who are close to him and who believe in him".

Eriksson is close to Owen and knows he can bring the ex-Liverpool star back to the Northwest for £9 million. The Swede is Thaksin's No1 choice to be new manager at City.
