Who is Marlos Moreno? Colombian international striker linked with Bristol City

Marlos Moreno is a 25-year old Colombian international striker who has been on the books at Manchester City since 2016.

The Premier League champions signed the player from Atlético Nacional in his homeland in 2016 but he has yet to make a first team appearance.

Since joining the Citizens, Moreno has been out on loan to seven different clubs in six years.

His first two loan spells were in La Liga, first with Deportivo La Coruña and then with Girona.

In 2018 he spent time on loan at Flamengo in the Brazilian Serie A and then in Santos Laguna in the Liga Mex - the top flight of Mexican football.

His next move in the 2019-20 seasons was to Portuguese Primeira Liga side Portimonense.

Moreno has spent the last two seasons on loan in the Belgian Pro League, first with Lommel SK in 2020-21 and then with Kortrijk last season.

In total, the striker played 90 games over those loan spells and scored just four goals.

On the international stage he has earned eight caps for Colombia and scored one goal between 2016 and now.

Marlos Moreno to Bristol City - what has been reported?

According to Colombia.AS, Moreno has three ‘proposals’ from Championship sides and names them as Bristol City, Norwich City and Sunderland.

It is unclear whether those proposals are to sign the player permanently or on loan with one year still remaining on his Manchester City contract (per Transfermarkt).
