Having already confirmed a couple of new signings for the 2022/23 campaign, Pep Guardiola's Manchester City have now reportedly set their sights on a Spanish star.
The Citizens have now acquired two new strikers in Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez – whose deal to join the Manchester club from River Plate was confirmed in January – following a campaign in which a recognised No. 9 was rarely utilised by City.

It now appears Guardiola is looking to address another issue in the team, with the club said to be looking to fill the void left by Benjamin Mendy after his suspension from all football-related activities following his arrest for seven counts of rape.
Joao Cancelo and Oleksandr Zinchenko have been sharing the role, but according to the Daily Mail, the Spanish boss is now considering Brighton & Hove Albion's Marc Cucurella as a left-sided fullback who could bolster his team.
The 23-year-old has impressed in his debut campaign with the Seagulls, and won two club awards last week in the form of the Players' Player of the Season and the Men's Player of the Season awards.
It is further claimed that the left-back, who is a product of FC Barcelona's famous La Masia academy, will reportedly be available for a fee in the region of £30 million (R594 million) after Graham Potter’s side spent £15.4 million (R305 million) to sign him from Getafe in August 2021.
