‘Finally a fast winger’, ‘Make it happen’ – Man City fans react as club chasing €40m attacker who has been hailed for ‘magnificent speed’


Manchester City fans have been reacting to a post on Twitter which relays a report that claims Pep Guardiola’s side are among the clubs interested in RB Salzburg forward, Noah Okafor.

The centre-forward, who can also operate as a winger on either flank, is enjoying a top season in Austria. He has managed 10 goals and two assists in his first 22 matches this campaign, with seven of those strikes coming in Austria’s Bundesliga.

Okafor found the net 14 times in the whole of last season, so he is primed and ready to surpass that achievement when domestic leagues return after the World Cup.

The 22-year-old, who is hoping to be a part of the Switzerland squad for the tournament, has previously been linked with a move to Arsenal and Leeds United.

Sky Germany’s Florian Plettenberg reports that Manchester City are in the race to sign Red Bull Salzburg forward Noah Okafor.

It’s stated that Liverpool and AC Milan are also keen on Okafor but Salzburg are seeking a rather large fee.

They claim a move for the forward during the January transfer window could be on the cards, with Red Bull Salzburg demanding around €35M – €40 million for him.

Pace and pressing ability is exactly what Man City will be looking for and Okafor could emerge as a key target for Pep Guardiola and co moving into 2023.

The report was shared on Twitter by City Xtra and it attracted plenty of attention from the club’s supporters.

“Everyone knows City don’t do transfers in Jan regardless of how urgent it is, and it’s a ridiculous stance. We can’t win games with Bernardo on the wings. And Grealish doesn’t contribute anything to G/A.”
