Alvarez interest emerges
Julian Alvarez has previously spoken of his admiration for Manchester City amid reports he could be arriving at the Etihad imminently.

In an interview on Radio La Red, Alvarez said: “Playing in Europe is most people’s dream because of the quality of these leagues and what it means to be in these clubs.
“But I’m taking it slow. Obviously I’m talking to my agent and my family, but I know I have to stay focused on what I’m doing. Later, the time will come, thanks to the work I’m doing.
“On the PlayStation, I play with Barcelona or Manchester City.”
Vlahovic ‘prefers’ Etihad switch
Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic is ‘dreaming’ of a move to Manchester City as reports link him with a move to Arsenal this month, it has been claimed.
According to the Italian outlet the Republicca, the player is ‘in no rush to decide his future’ in this month’s January transfer window as he actually wants to secure a move to City at the end of the season.
However, his club would prefer to sell him this month as the player’s contract expires at the end of next season, so he could receive a lot more money if they manage to move him in the current window.
Arsenal are also said to be desperate to seal his signature this month as they expect more clubs to enter the race for the striker this summer, and with Pep Guardiola yet to replace Sergio Aguero following his move in Barcelona, City could be one of them.
