According to an update courtesy of le10sport, Man City winger Riyad Mahrez is ‘doing his best‘ to convince AC Milan midfielder Ismael Bennacer to join the Sky Blues – prompting many supporters to beg Txiki Begiristain over signing the 22-year-old who is ‘better than Gundogan‘. 

Bennacer, who has started 26 Serie A matches for Milan this season, could be an ideal heir to Fernandinho given his stats – with the Algerian making a higher amount of tackles on average than the Brazilian in midfield, even more than the 35-year-old managed during his stellar 2019/2019 campaign.

Can Bennacer replace Fernandinho?

Yes, make the deal happen Txiki

Even though Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain are also eyeing a move for the youngster, City may have an advantage in the pursuit through Mahrez – who is reportedly attempting to sway his teammate in choosing an Eastlands move over the San Siro.

Flocking to the report, it’s clear many Sky Blues would adore this transfer – with some calling him a ‘dream signing‘.
