Manchester City FC transfer news: 'Talks opened with Benfica over deal for defender Nelson Semedo'
Nelson Semedo on the ball for Portugal
Manchester City have made contact with Benfica over a summer swoop for defender Nelson Semedo.
The 23-year-old has caught the eye in Portugal over the past 12 months and he has been continually linked with several sides.
Manchester City appear to be at the front of the queue though as, according to O Jogo, they have now begun talks with Benfica over a deal for Semedo.
Pep Guardiola has identified the right-back position as an area he wants to strengthen in the summer and there had been talk he would swoop for Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin.
However, the Gunners are very reluctant to let the Spaniard go for any price and City have now seemingly moved on to Semedo.
