Man City planning shock move for Chelsea graduate?

Ian Maatsen news

Maatsen wanted by Man City?

Manchester City could make a shock approach to sign Chelsea graduate Ian Maatsen with his contract expiring next summer.

The Dutchman spent the previous season on loan with Burnley. He was impressive as they got promoted to the Premier League.

The Blues were willing to sell him for £31m to the Clarets this summer, but the left-back decided to reject the transfer proposal.

Maatsen is currently in the final year of his contract at the club and as things stand, he has yet to commit to a new long-term deal.

It is now reported by 90min that Pep Guardiola's side are keeping tabs on Maatsen and could make a move for him next year.

The Cityzens currently have Josko Gvardiol and Nathan Ake as left-back choices, but neither are specialists in the position.

Maatsen could be considered as a long-term option for the Cityzens. It is left to be seen whether they aim to sign him in January.
