Manchester City Target Aston Villa’s Ashley Young And Udinese’s Alexis Sanchez Following Adam Johnson Injury - Report

Manchester City are lining up moves for Aston Villa's Ashley Young and Udinese's Alexis Sanchez after an ankle injury sustained by Adam Johnson, according to The Guardian.

The England international is expected to be sidelined for three months due to his injury, and the Eastlands outfit are now keen to to keep Shaun Wright-Phillips despite the midfielder submitting a transfer request.

City are thought to have turned down the former Chelsea man's request, and manager Roberto Mancini recently conceded that the club could make a move for a wide-man.

Sanchez has long been a reported target for Manchester United, while Young has been linked with a move to Liverpool.
