Manchester City have completed a £30m deal for Borussia Dortmund midfielder, Ilkay Gundogan, who has been in fine form this season, scoring three goals and providing seven assists in 38 appearances for the Bundesliga side, according to The Sun.
The Citizens believe they have completed the deal for the 25-year-old Germany international, after an initial asking price of £34m by Dortmund, a fee City were not willing to pay.
However, both teams have settled on a £30m as a compromise, beating the likes of Arsenal, cross-city neighbours, Manchester United, and Liverpool in the process.
An official announcement is set to be made at the end of the season confirming the impending transfer to Etihad.
Gundogan will be the first of many signings for the incoming manger, Pep Guardiola, who is set for a busy summer overhaul of the squad.
Gundogan has emerged as one of the top midfielders in Europe during his five years at Dortmund, scoring 10 goals in 103 appearances for the Bundesliga giants.
Reports suggest the player, who has emerged as one of the top midfielders in Europe during his five years at Dortmund – scoring 10 goals in 103 appearances for the Bundesliga giants – will replace outgoing midfielder Yaya Toure.
