Manchester City fans react to Robin Gosens' Germany display

If Manchester City weren’t sure about signing Robin Gosens, then today’s performance at Euro 2020 should convince them.

Gosens was the star man for Germany today as they beat Portugal 4-2 at the Allianz Arena in Munich, producing a superb attacking display.

The Atalanta star did in fact win the ‘Star of the Match’ award, and City were surely paying close attention.

Gosens’ devastating Germany performance

Utilised as a left-sided wing back by Joachim Loew, just as he is at Atalanta, Gosens was a thorn in Portugal’s side from the very beginning.

He had an early goal ruled out by VAR, but took over when Germany went 1-0 down.

He crossed the ball in for a Ruben Dias own goal, grabbed another assist for Kai Havertz’s goal and then got himself on the scoresheet with a fine header.

Gosens was then withdrawn as Marcel Halstenberg came on, with the 26-year-old again proving that he is one of the top wing backs in Europe right now.

Manchester City’s interest in Gosens

Tuttomercatoweb have reported that City made a move for Gosens in January, with Pep Guardiola believed to be a big fan of the German.

City do need a left back, and with Gosens able to play there, City fans are clamouring for him to be signed in a big-money move this summer.

City supporters have taken to Twitter to suggest that Gosens is a ‘baller’ and needs to be signed this summer to solve the left back problems City have endured for years.
