Manchester City boss Sven Goran Eriksson has revealed the club are working hard to bring in new players.

Eriksson has already been busy in the transfer market bringing in Rolando Bianchi and Gelson Fernandes since arriving at Eastlands.

The Swede accepts the squad needs strengthening if they are to enjoy a successful campaign for the forthcoming season.

"Our captain said it is an interesting time at the club with a new owner," Eriksson told Sky Sports News.

"The club have a target - they want to be stronger, they want to fight much higher up in the table and I am very pleased that I am here.

"Let's see what is happening in the next few weeks in the transfer market.

"Things will happen I am sure about that and I look forward to this and hopefully it will be very good. That's a target we have to work for."

Eriksson was remaining coy on his targets, with Atletico Madrid winger Martin Petrov the latest player to be linked with a move to City

"I think during the last few weeks we have been linked to 50 or 60 footballers around the world," added Eriksson. "It is good, it is interesting.

"I promise you we are working very hard within the club and myself, of course, to try to strengthen the squad.

"We need to do that, we have to do that."
