Man City focus on prising Fernando away from Porto

Manchester City are focusing on closing a deal for Porto midfielder Fernando this week.

The Manchester Evening News says having landed Bacary Sagna on a free from Arsenal, the Blues are confident Porto midfielder Fernando will be next in followed by a centre-half.

The defensive midfielder, who has also attracted interest from Everton, would compete with Fernandinho and Yaya Toure.

Indications are that the Brazil-born player, who now has Portuguese citizenship, will be signed up by the end of the month.
