That is according to a report from Valencia-based journalist Hector Gomez, who claims talks between the player’s agent Jorge Mendes and City transfer chief Txiki Begiristain on Wednesday were productive.

It follows on from a report in Spanish radio station Cadena Ser and a report in Eurosport that City had already agreed personal terms with the player and only needed to close an agreed sum with Los Che.
🚨🦇 NOTICIA @SERDepValencia:
✈️ El Manchester City quiere cerrar ya el fichaje de Ferran Torres.

Torres is entering the final year of his contract at the Mestalla and thus his market value may be seen as particular value for a buying club this summer.
Leroy Sane has left the English side to join Bayern Munich and it is believed Torres – who has been a focus of Premier League transfer news this summer – has been identified as his replacement.
Herrera played 36 matches for Granada, scoring two goals and handing out three assists to help the club qualify for European football for the first time.
