City set to complete £10 million double striker swoop

Manchester City are closing in on the double signing of FC Basel striker Felipe Caicedo and Portsmouth top scorer Benjani.

City boss Sven Goran Eriksson has desperately been looking out for a new front man with the current set of front men misfiring.

Caicedo is set to join City for a fee of around £5 million. He has made over 40 appearances for the Swiss club scoring 12 goals. Benjani has scored 19 goals for Pompey in just under 70 games and will also complete a £5 million move to the City of Manchester before midnight.

As a City fan I am not overly happy with the signings. Benjani is, in my view, overrated and I have never really seen Caicedo play but in fairness he has been linked with several top European clubs so he must be decent.
