21 Aug Sources: Man City close to Walker, Silva deals
Silva and Walker have both been linked with moves away from the Etihad Stadium this summer but are now set to stay.
They are looking for a winger to replace Mahrez and also working on bringing in a new midfielder after losing Kevin De Bruyne for the first half of the season because of a hamstring injury.
He is set to rejoin training this week.
Meanwhile, Aymeric Laporte is close to accepting Al Nassr’s offer to move to Saudi Arabia. City have accepted a bid and Laporte — who was not named in the squad at the weekend — has been discussing terms.
Sources have also told ESPN that City are getting closer to reaching a deal with Barcelona for full-back João Cancelo.
The agreement is likely to be a loan with an obligation to buy next summer worth around £25m.
