The Spaniard is reportedly already in the north west of England to complete his transfer, with a fee of around £11m plus add-ons being touted.
Guardiola also confirmed the move in his press conference on Friday, but no official announcement has been forthcoming yet.
But what will Gomez offer to Manchester City once he finally completes his transfer?
Gomez joined Anderlecht in 2021 for a fee of just £2m, leaving German powerhouse Borussia Dortmund.
The former Barcelona academy star has since featured 50 times for the Belgian outfit, scoring seven and assisting 15 in the process.
Now, comments on the part of Gomez’s brother from 2021 have re-emerged, with the left-back’s versatility pointed to as a major advantage for any club that has him on their books:
“Sergio’s versatility is a big advantage for his coaches,” Gomez’s brother said. “It gives them options and Sergio more opportunities to play. He still needs to grow as a left-back, but I’m sure we’ll see a very different Sergio at the end of the season. Kompany is the perfect teacher for the defensive aspect.”
Manchester City eye other left-backs
Outside of Gomez, Manchester City do still look to be eyeing another left-back signing this summer.
This is not too surprising given that even with Gomez, City would still have just three senior full-backs on their books.
A number of names have been linked, with the main ones being Renan Lodi, Raphael Guerreiro, Rayan Ait-Nouri, Alex Grimaldo, and Borna Sosa.
