City chasing English talent with Sinclair, Butland and Caulker on radar

Manchester City are lining up bids for five of England’s hottest young talents with Swansea City winger Scott Sinclair thought to be top of their hit list according to the Daily Mail.

The Premier League champions after secured their first  signing of the summer with Jack Rodwell from Everton in a £12 million deal on Sunday and are now targeting some of the countries top youngsters.

Sinclair seems certain to be the next through the door at the Etihad Stadium as Roberto Mancini looks to build solid foundations for the future after discussing it with the clubs hierarchy.

Whilst Mancini is more concerned with immediate purchases as he prepares his side for the defence of their title but wants an influx of fresh faced, British born players to develop over the coming years.

Long-term targets are valued at around £10-£15 million and are considered investments that will provide backup to the current squad and become fully fledged members of the first team once their potential is fulfilled.

A deal for Sinclair is thought to be imminent with new Swans boss Michael Laudrup reported to be already searching for a replacement after the South Wales club resigned themselves to losing the 23-year-old.

Tottenham Hotspur centre back Caulker has also emerged as a target after his impressive performances for Team GB at the London Olympics earlier this month and was also selected for England by Roy Hodgson for Wednesday’s 2-1 win over Italy.

Mancini is also keen on Birmingham City’s 19-year-old keeper Jack Butland following his meteoric rise into the Three Lions squad for Euro 2012 and is considered the heir to Joe Hart’s throne.

His St Andrew’s teammate Nathan Redmond is also under consideration after a fine season in the Championship with City looking to take advantage of the Blues’ perilous financial situation to nab the highly rated 18-year-old winger.
