Striker John Guidetti has received approaches from NINE clubs wanting to take his services in the January window.
It would appear the Swede has no shortage of takers, with City now exploring the best of those options.
Dutch side Feyenoord, where Guidetti smashed in 20 goals in 23 games during a season-long loan back in 2011-12, have even mooted a permanent transfer, in the region of £5m.
City, however, have insisted we are still of not that thinking, despite leaks out in Sweden last week that the player is now surplus to requirements.
Championship clubs Bolton and Wigan have also made enquiries, with assurances he would be an immediate starter.
There is believed to be numerous offers from Spain, Italy and Germany, and Guidetti is to hold talks with Txiki Begiristain early next week.
Guidetti was on the bench for last weekend’s trouncing of Spurs and Pellegrini wants to take a closer look, having also tried to take him on loan when in charge at Malaga.
