Manchester City target Jules Kounde as alternative to Kalidou Koulibaly. The Club have signed Ferran Torres and Nathan Ake.
Manchester City have discussed Sevilla defender Jules Kounde as a potential alternative to Kalidou Koulibaly as they continue to hunt for a long-term partner for Aymeric Laporte.
The 21-year-old insisted he was staying with Sevilla on Thursday but is seen as a more viable option for City than his defensive partner, Diego Carlos.
City and Napoli remain at an impasse over Koulibaly, with the Serie A side demanding more than £70m.
Guardiola admires Atletico’s Madrid’s Jose Gimenez but they insist he will only be sold for his buy out clause of £90m.
City are fielding interest from Galatasaray for veteran Fernandinho but Guardiola would rather the Brazilian remain at the Etihad Stadium.
