EPL By: Ayodeji Tunde | 19/12/2017

Manchester City as presently constituted are more than a formidable side but the CITIZENS will be making some more signings in January it has been gathered.

One of those being considered is Paraguay starlet Jesus Medina who City are willing to splash £3million on to get from Libertad.

Pep Guardiola already has Gabriel Jesus in his squad and another Jesus is now being courted.

The 20-year-old attacker is due to join the Premier League leaders but be immediately loaned out to their sister club New York City in the MLS.

Danish side Copenhagen are also in the chase for the winger, according to Futbol a lo Grande in the star's homeland.

He told them as much in a recent interview, but it looks like the City Group that owns the Citizens and NYCFC have won the race for his services.

Due to his lack of caps for his country, he is being sent out to the States for the 2018 season while he works on obtaining a UK work permit.
