Skysports.com understands City are leading the chase for the Serbian striker - a suggestion backed up by the Racing Santander president.
At a press conference for new signings Martin Petrov and Geovanni, Eriksson was reluctant to go into any detail about Zigic.
"You should not believe everything you read in the papers," said Eriksson. "I've no comment about it.
"As usual I will have comments when we are sitting here the next time with one or two others."
Petrov's £4.7million capture from Atletico Madrid takes Eriksson's signings to four, following on from Rolando Bianchi, Gelson Fernandes and Geovanni.
Eriksson aims to add further players to his squad before the transfer window closes, but the Swede concedes he can not guarantee the arrivals will be British.
When asked if he wanted to sign home-grown talent, he replied: "Yes, of course, but as you know it's not easy to find them, well, you can find them, but to buy them is not easy.
"The contracts are extremely hard and it costs a lot of money, but we'll see.
"I don't think we've finished. We'll go in and there will come even more new faces in different positions.
"If they are English or not, I can't tell you."
