Manchester City director of football Txiki Begiristain reportedly meets with Mario Gotze's agent in order to discuss a potential move to the Etihad Stadium.

Manchester City have moved to the front of the queue for Borussia Dortmund star Mario Gotze, according to reports.

The 20-year-old is one of Europe's hottest prospects and is thought to be held in high regard by a number of clubs across the continent, including Manchester United, Arsenal, Real Madrid and Barcelona.

However, it is the Citizens who are believed to be weighing up a €40m (£34m) summer move for the attacker, which would activate a release clause in his contract.

According to German magazine Kicker, Gotze's representative Volker Struth has already met with Txiki Begiristain in order to discuss a potential move to the Etihad Stadium.

The German international has scored 14 goals in 39 appearances in all competitions this season.
