Man City go for Eibar goalkeeper Asier Riesgo

Manchester City are moving for Eibar goalkeeper Asier Riesgo.

The Sun says City boss Pep Guardiola has targeted the Eibar keeper, 35, to bolster his squad as he hunts a hat-trick of Premier League titles.

Riesgo, out of contract and available on a free, would give cover for No 1 Ederson along with fit-again Chilean Claudio Bravo.

It would allow Aro Muric to go out on loan again, with Nottingham Forest keen on a season-long deal.

Riesgo is seen as the perfect keeper to come in and add experienced back-up after his 18 years as a pro in Spain.

He started at Real Sociedad where he worked closely with current City goalkeeper coach Xabier Mancisidor, who has given the move his seal of approval.
