Manchester City boss Mark Hughes intends to offer £4 million for Blackburn Rovers defender Christopher Samba.
The 6ft 4in Congo star, 24, was a £400,000 bargain buy from Hertha Berlin 18 months ago.
Samba's agent Leon Lambert said: "He was Mark Hughes' discovery, who right now wants him at Manchester City. He could leave for £4million."
