Manchester City are in the race to sign Arsenal target Geoffrey Kondogbia, confirms his agent.

The French international is attracted interest from the Premier League this summer and a bid in the region of £25m is said to have been submitted by Arsenal.

The former Sevilla midfielder has been in superb form of late, impressing for Ligue 1 side Monaco but he remains keen on progressing as a player and wants to push for a domestic league title in either England or Spain.

His agent, Jonathan Benbaron has indicated that same notion, before claiming that Man City are interested.

“The player appeals to a lot of clubs around Europe,” he told FC Internews.

“In addition to interest from Inter, there’s also Juventus, Manchester City and Real Madrid. A lot of teams have contacted us, but I can’t reveal how far along the various talks are.

“Will he leave this summer? Everything is possible in football.”

Arsenal will now face a fight to sign the talented Frenchman.
