Premier League rivals Manchester City have set their sights on signing Josko Gvardiol from RB Leipzig amidst the interest from Tottenham Hotspur in Aymeric Laporte.

As a result, the North London side have seen their hopes of acquiring the services of the Spain international increase, with the Sky Blues looking to bolster their squad with one of Croatia’s biggest talents.

Now as per The Times (h/t football.london), the Cityzens are close to agreeing an £86 million deal with the Bundesliga outfit to get a hold of Gvardiol’s signature in the ongoing transfer window.

The 21-year-old’s possible arrival would add another number to Pep Guardiola’s defensive ranks. At the moment, the Manchester-based club already have an abundance of talent at the back, with Ruben Dias, John Stones, Nathan Ake and Manuel Akanji.
