London, July 27 (ANI): Manchester City are believed to be close to signing Ivory Coast center-half Kolo Toure for 14 million pounds.
Toure currently plays for Arsenal and will be City's next big signing after Emmanuel Adebayor was secured from the Gunners for 25 million pounds.
Should Toure leave, Arsenal's chances of making it to the last four in the Premier League could go up in smoke.
The Sun quoted an adviser of Arsenal shareholder Alisher Usmanov, as saying that the club's lack of new signings could damage their hopes of also making the Champions League.
Farhad Moshiri, an associate of billionaire Russian Usmanov said: "There is no question that Arsene Wenger has a talented squad but there have been limited additions and you cannot help but feel that there is still not enough depth to that squad." (ANI)
