Signing imminent?

Some positive news at last!

Lazio midfielder Ousmane Dabo has given a clear indication that he could be on his way to the club after announcing he has been in his talks over a free transfer move in the summer;

"One thing is for sure - Lazio's proposition still doesn't suit me. The club from Roma offers me a six-year prolongation. Today, staying seems difficult to me. If I leave I will choose another league. It has been in my head for several years now. The present thought is about my future destination. Today, our position with Lazio is far away.
I am in talks with Manchester City. As I am close to the end of my contract, my managers are talking with several teams. We have not talked about wages with Manchester City yet. I don't want to make a bad choice, as I did in the past. The Manchester City challenge is really exciting. So today, I say: 'Why not?’

The midfield is definitely an area that has universally been identified as needing strengthening and Dabo is a good player and certainly an upgrade over the likes of Reyna, Musampa and Sibierski who have been used in that position this season.

Also, coming in on a free transfer and (presumably) fitting in with the club wage structure it will definitely be good business by Pearce if he manages to pull this signing off.

vote it up!
