Manchester City have entered the chase for Ajax winger Antony, with Pep Guardiola chasing an exciting right-sided player to refresh the options in the position.
According to Tuttosport, as relayed by Sport Witness, Manchester City have entered the race to sign Brazilian winger Antony. Pep Guardiola wants the club to bring a new right-sided attacker, as the future of Riyad Mahrez has come under significant doubt.
Antony has set the world alight at Ajax this season as he continues to flourish under the tutelage and system of Erik ten Hag. The Brazilian has had a hand in 12 goals and ten assists across all competitions for the Dutch side from 33 appearances.
Antony’s performances have put him on shortlists across the continent, with plenty of interest coming from the Premier League. Erik ten Hag reportedly wants to take him to Manchester United if he becomes their new manager. At the same time, there is interest from Juventus, Chelsea and Arsenal in the winger, alongside the latest entrants Manchester City.
Pep Guardiola is thinking hard about bringing in a new right-winger after losing Ferran Torres in January, while the future of Riyad Mahrez could also play a part in the manager’s decision. The Algerian will enter his final contractual year, which may prompt the club to entertain offers for the attacker.
