City to unveil new striker ?

Some news sources are reporting that City have landed Valencia striker Bernado Corradi (30) on a two-year deal with a reported fee in the region of £1m for the ex-Italian international.

This rumoured signing suggests Psycho is determined to build a strong squad to avoid a repeat of last season when the depth of the squad ( or lack of it), was apparent to all and the cause of City's dire end-of-season run in.

If the rumour is true, City will now have five strikers fighting for two places ( Cole, Samaras, Vassell, Dickov and now Corradi). However, it is possible that Vass and Dickov could play as attacking midfielders just sitting behind the strikers; an option that probably suits both their styles of play.

With rising Academy stars Sturridge and Etuhu also pressing for first team inclusion, it looks like Psycho might be spoiled for choice - now wouldn't that be a great problem to have for a change.

However, with rumours persisting about Distin and Richards, do we really need another striker right at the moment or should we be looking to strengthen the midfield and defence in the likely event of an imminent departure?
