Premier League champions Manchester City are close to signing Stefan Ortega from relegated Bundesliga club Arminia Bielefeld as a backup for first-choice goalkeeper Edersonaccording to the report.

Kicker magazine and bestselling daily Bild say the 29-year-old will join The Citizens on a free transfer when his Bielefeld contract expires.
