Manchester City reportedly could be on a brink to make a January move on United States goalkeeper Zack Steffen as a potential substitute to Ederson. 

Steffen, who was recently named 2018 Allstate MLS Goalkeeper of the Year and has won six caps for the US national team, will cost City a whooping $7 million (£5.5 million) – $10 million (£7.8 million).

Although, Columbus coach Gregg Berhalter was quick to deny reports claiming a deal had been concluded but admitted that the MLS side have been approached regarding a possible transfer to the Manchester City.

Pep Guardiola has to review his options after Claudio Bravo is expected to be out for the season after sustaining a ruptured Achilles tendon injury in training.

Manchester City first January Signing

The 23-year old, Steffen has been incredible for his club in the MLS the past couple of seasons and while he is not of the same calibre of Ederson, he is more than capable of serving as a right hand man.

According to reports, the deal will be finalized by the end of the week and Columbus is going to get a small portion of any subsequent sale of Steffen.

However, it is still unclear whether Man City will use Steffen as a replacement to Ederson or loan him out swiftly. The 23 year old youngster has been in news for some time after leading his side to the MLS playoffs twice whilst keeping 22 clean sheets in the process.

Championship side Bristol City made an attempt for Steffen last summer but their bid of $4m was rejected instantly by the club.
