I would not be surprised to see City go after Ndidi or Idrissa Gueye,
if they can be leveraged away from current owners. Ndidi has been
very good for two years and is only 22. Gueye is older, but
apparently much sought after - PSG really wanted him.
I don't think Ndidi is anything special, Choudhury is much better which
may be why Leicester would be willing to let Ndidi go. Gueye is too
important to Everton, they should demand the Earth for him. Besides
that, Fernandinho isn't hard to replace, he's important to City in a
team of ball playing midfielders. He's had far too many poor
performances in Europe and for Brazil to merit this rep as a great DM -
he's played in 2 WCs, can you recall when he dominated a good MF? I
think it would be fairly easy for City to find an upgrade. He's more
Nicky Butt than Roy Keane.

I could see Digne and Chilwell being targetted by richer clubs.
Both better going forward than defending.
True, but that is what a lot of teams want these days. The same could
be said of Robertson and Alexander-Arnold, Alonso, Shaw, Trippier, Rose,
and so on.
Coleman seems to be playing very well again after his horrible injury
and lengthy time out. But he is now 30, so I don't expect him to move to
one of the bigger clubs. One of the best bargains ever - cost 60,000
pounds to transfer from Sligo Rivers, and has now played 283 times for
Everton, with 25 goals and a whack of assists. His backup, Jonjoe Kenny
is pretty good and only 22, so I suppose Everton might let Coleman go
for a suitable buyer and price.
