Much of the speculation about potential transfer targets for Manchester City has revolved around players either at big four clubs in England or on the continent. But with City under performing at the back and the Icelandic financial crisis crippling West Ham United, Matthew Upson has emerged as a player that could end up in City blue when the January transfer window opens.
Given Upson’s injury troubles signing him for a fee upwards of £10 million would be a risk. But City needs help in the central defense and signing a player from West Ham maybe relatively simple in the upcoming window. City will face competition for Upson however: the Telegraph reports that Harry Redknapp is interested in bringing both Upson and Rob Green to Spurs.
Would Upson be a good signing for City? I’m not sure his signing would provide anything but a short term fix at the back. Additionally Upson long history of bad injuries at both Birmingham City and West Ham is worrying. But Upson is attractive because any player at West Ham is probably going to be easier to sign this January given the current state of the club’s finances than any of the other defenders that have been publicly linked with City.
