MANCHESTER CITY seem set to strike a double early blow in the transfer market as they close in on the signing of Fernandinho after seemingly securing Jesus Navas.

Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fernandinho (pictured) was reportedly spotted in Manchester for a medical ahead of a rumoured £34million move to the Etihad Stadium.

Signing the Brazilian would come soon after a deal for Sevilla winger Navas, which was confirmed, subject to a medical, by the Spanish club earlier in the week.

City, who are also believed to be close to appointing Manuel Pellegrini as manager, have not commented on either prospective transfer.

Both seem likely to be confirmed alongside the arrival of Pellegrini.
