TOP STORY: City turnoff to Guerreiro

Manchester City are set to change focus when looking for a left-back after failing to agree a fee with Brighton and Hove Albion Marc Cucurella.

Sources have told ESPN that Man City will not pay the Seagulls’ £50m price tag for the Barcelona youth product and that they are now actively looking at alternatives

The Athletic reports that the Borussia Dortmund star Raphael Guerreiro, a target they have previously been linked with due to his ability to contribute high up on the pitch, has been escalated to Man City’s shortlist. The 28-year-old scored eight goals for BVB in 23 Bundesliga and Champions League games last season and also impressed at international level for Portugal.

Following Oleksandr Zinchenko’s move to Arsenal, City are expected to step up their transfer efforts next week in hopes of finding a replacement left-back before the start of the Premier League campaign on August 7.
