Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola wants the club to make a move for one Napoli star, reports suggest.
According to The Sun, Guardiola will keep a close eye on Faouzi Ghoulam when City meet Napoli again in the Champions League having been impressed with his performance at the Etihad Stadium.
The Sky Blues are aware that Ghoulam is into the final year of his contract with the Serie A pace-setters, meaning he will be available on a free next summer.
However, the 26-year-old looks unlikely to sign a new deal with Napoli, meaning they could be forced to cash in on him in January.
Guardiola will be mindful of the need to restore depth in his squad after Benjamin Mendy recently suffered a long-term injury.
Ghoulam led a second-half revival Maurizio Sarri’s men on Tuesday night and won a penalty for the visitors following a skilful run.
