The summer transfer window has now begun, with rumours and speculation continuing to swirl as Manchester City eye possible reinforcements.
The 2018-19 champions did not bring in a single player during the January transfer window, despite suffering a defensive shortage for much of the 2019-20 campaign, but they have already started their business for the summer.
Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest news on possible comings and goings at the Etihad.
Monday morning's Manchester City transfer talk news roundup:
Liverpool are reportedly targeting a move for Schalke 04 centre-back Ozan Kabak.
Jurgen Klopp's side are yet to replace Dejan Lovren, though, and according to Transfermarkt, the Premier League champions want to sign Kabak before the end of the summer transfer window.
The report claims that Sevilla's Diego Carlos has also emerged as an option, but Kabak is higher on the club's list as he would be more affordable in the current market.
The 20-year-old featured on 28 occasions for the Royal Blues during the 2019-20 campaign, including 26 outings in the Bundesliga, where he contributed three goals and one assist.
Manchester City, Juventus and Borussia Dortmund have also previously been linked with the Turkey international, who only joined Schalke from Stuttgart on a five-year deal last summer.
Barcelona are reportedly prepared to allow Nelson Semedo to join a Premier League club this summer.
The Portugal international is not believed to be in the long-term plans of new Barca boss Ronald Koeman, who is allegedly targeting a move for Ajax right-back Sergino Dest.
Semedo was linked with a switch to Manchester City earlier this summer although suggestions that the defender could join Pep Guardiola's side have quietened in recent weeks.
According to ESPN, Barca have been contacted by an unnamed Premier League club and are open to the 26-year-old moving to England's top flight before the end of the transfer window.
Semedo has been a regular for the Catalan giants since arriving from Benfica in 2017, making 124 appearances in all competitions.
The Portuguese's current deal at Camp Nou is due to expire in the summer of 2022.
