The 27-year-old Swiss international maintains an estimated market worth of €30 million in the latest transfermarkt listings. Given some of the player's injury and form issues over the last two years, however, this is not a sum even a wealthy club such as Man City are willing to pay.
The sum thus being discussed is around €17.5 million. The Athletic does report that the two sides are "far along" in negotiations and that a medical could be scheduled soon.
