Manchester City have made an initial bid for Wolves’ Nunes, despite recent reports of interest in Eze.
The Blues begin the 23/24 season as Treble Winners. As Premier League Kings, and Champions of Europe.
However, it is not in the clubs nature to stand still. Nor is it in Peps plans. The aim is to continue striving for success. Which is why recruitment for the senior squad is crucial following the loss of key players this summer.
The Blues have made significant pocket money from player sales, academy sales and competition prize money from the previous season.
Therefore, there are healthy funds to utilise in the summer transfer window.
Recent rumours have linked the club to Crystal Palace youngster Eze. Abdi Rashid for the Daily Mail confirmed the links earlier this week. Nevertheless, the Blues are yet to place a bid for Eze.
Though they have placed a shock bid to Wolves for Portuguese national Nunes. While there has been no official bid for Eze.

The two players are of completely contrasting profiles and it is feasible that depending on deals reached, Txiki could bring them both to the Etihad this summer.
