Man City favourites for Atletico Madrid's Petrov

Manchester City are favourites to sign Atletico Madrid winger Martin Petrov.

Tottenham have apparently been tracking the Bulgaria international all summer but Eriksson has made Petrov a target - and the former England boss is now on the verge of landing the 28-year-old, according to the Daily Mirror.

Atletico paid Wolfsburg £8million for Petrov in 2005 and the Spanish side are likely to want a similar fee from City, who are armed with a hefty transfer warchest following Thaksin Shinawatra's takeover.

Petrov has made 43 appearances since moving to La Liga, scoring twice.
