According to a report, Manchester City made a last-minute attempt to sign Crystal Palace attacking midfielder Eberechi Eze, but the deal fell through.
Despite a busy summer transfer window for Man City, with several players leaving and new signings coming in, they were unable to secure Eze’s signature.
The club made an 11th hour bid of £60m for the player, but Palace held firm on their asking price of £80m.
Eze, who had a standout season for Palace last year, may now be offered a new contract by the club.
Despite the failed deal, City would be expected to keep Eze on their radar for future transfer targets.
