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.
Wednesday morning's Manchester City transfer talk news roundup:
Manchester City have had a huge £92m bid for defender Jose Gimenez knocked back by Atletico Madrid, according to a report.
Last season's Premier League runners-up remain on the lookout for a new centre-back, despite bringing in Nathan Ake from Bournemouth last month.
Napoli's Kalidou Koulibaly is a possible target for the Citizens, but Spanish outlet Marca claims that Gimenez is their primary target.
City are said to have tabled a mammoth offer for the Uruguay international, which would have made him comfortably their record signing.
However, it is claimed that Atletico are not prepared to let Gimenez leave unless his £110m release clause is triggered.
Gimenez has spent six seasons in Atleti's first team and has three years to run on his existing contract.
Napoli will reportedly take Kalidou Koulibaly off the transfer list if a deal for the centre-back is not done by this weekend.
The 29-year-old has been consistently linked with a move to the Premier League for a number of years now, with Manchester United and Manchester City thought to be most interested as they search for defensive reinforcements.
Paris Saint-Germain are also understood to be monitoring his situation, but no club has yet been willing to meet Napoli's €75m (£69.1m) asking price.
La Gazzetta dello Sport claims that Man City are currently leading the race but are not prepared to pay more than €70m (£64.5m), with talks further complicated by the frosty relationship between the two clubs following the collapse of a deal for Jorginho in 2018.
Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has confirmed that Koulibaly will be allowed to leave this summer if the club receive a suitable offer, but both the club and the player would also still be happy if he stayed.
The Serie A outfit have set a deadline of this weekend to get any deal sorted due their league campaign getting underway against Parma on Sunday.
