Manchester City manager Sven Goran Eriksson, who is definitely on the lookout for a new striker, is one of Anelka's most public admirers. "Anelka is a fantastic footballer," the Swede said. "He is one of those players who has everything. He has technique, pace and can score goals. What more would you want from a striker?" Manchester City will play Bolton at home Saturday.
The well-traveled Anelka played two and half seasons for City (2002-2005) before moving to Fenerbahce in Turkey. He scored 38 goals in 89 appearances at City.
