Manchester City are reportedly deep into discussions with Libertad over the transfer of Jesus Medina.

According to the Daily Mail, the Citizens are closing in on the promising youngster, who has been catching the eye of many in the Paraguayan top flight.

Medina is a versatile player who is capable of playing on either wing or up front as a striker. He is already an established Paraguay international and is held in extremely high regard by Libertad.

At just 20-years-old, Medina has made 72 senior appearances for his side and has also contributed with a respectable total of 17 goals at his tender age.

It’s stated by the Daily Mail that City are discussing a deal worth £3 million for Medina, who is unlikely to be granted a work permit immediately upon his expected move to City.

As a result of this, it seems Pep Guardiola’s men could loan him out, with a move to MLS side New York City FC looking likely.
