Pep Guardiola 'wants Tanguy Ndombele at Manchester City'

Manchester City are stepping up their long-term interest in Lyon star Tanguy Ndombele with the club set to launch a £70 million bid for the midfielder, Sun Sport reports.

Manchester City have been frustrated in their attempts to find an heir for Fernandinho, with Jorginho picking Chelsea over the Etihad and Fred signing for Manchester United.

But Guardiola believes he has finally found a suitable replacement, but will once again need to battle United to seal the deal.

That has prompted City to turn their attentions to Ndombele, whom they came up against in the Champions League group stage earlier in the season.

Neighbours Manchester United and Italian giants Juventus also want Ndombele, meaning City could have serious competition for the Lyon ace, but it is claimed that the Blues are willing to pay a new club record fee of £70 million to get their man.

With the Brazil global set to turn 34 in May, the same article states that Pep Guardiola has made the Lyon midfielder his number one target to bolster his midfield options this summer.

The Citizens have relied heavily upon Ferandinho this season despite the 33-year-old being in the twilight of his career.

City were also impressed with Ndombele's team-mate Houssem Aouar.

Lyon club president Jean-Michel Aulas is renowned across the football world as a hard man to do transfer business with - Premier League clubs like Arsenal and Liverpool have had to wrestle with the Frenchman in recent seasons.

The Brazil global has scored one goal and has made three assists in 25 games in the Premier League this season.
