Manchester City chairman Thaksin Shinawatra has confirmed manager Sven Goran Eriksson's interest in Liverpool striker Peter Crouch.

"Sven is looking for one striker and one or two midfielders," he told Sky Sports News. "Sven does like Peter Crouch, very much. But he has yet to decide [on whether to make an offer].

"We are looking for good players that are good money, not too expensive. I am not in the position to buy everything at any cost. Sven will pick the right person at the right price."
