Man City aim to close Torres, Ake signings this week

Manchester City are aiming to wrap up the signings of Valencia attacker Ferran Torres and Bournemouth defender Nathan Ake.

The Sun says Torres will become City's first signing of the summer when he puts the finishing touches to his move in Barcelona today.

City's initial £20.8million deal is likely to kick off a busy summer in the transfer market at the Etihad.

Torres should officially be a City player this week although, due to the coronavirus, he will not be landing in England for a while.

A £41m price has also already been agreed with Bournemouth for Dutch centre-back Ake, 25.

He is currently on holiday but the Cherries expect things to be finalised within the next week.
