Barcelona are reportedly considering Manchester City assistant manager Juanma Lillo as a replacement for Ronald Koeman.

Barcelona have added Manchester City assistant manager Juanma Lillo to their managerial shortlist, according to a report.

Ronald Koeman moved closer to the Nou Camp exit door following the 3-0 defeat to Benfica in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Several coaches have already been touted to be the Dutchman's replacement, including Thomas Tuchel and Roberto Martinez.

Mundo Deportivo states that another name that Barcelona are considering is Man City coach Lillo, who replaced Mikel Arteta as Pep Guardiola's assistant at the Etihad Stadium last year.

The report adds that former Barca midfielder Xavi is high on Joan Laporta's list of candidates, while Antonio Conte has also been shortlisted.

Lillo's last managerial job was with Chinese side Qingdao Huanghai, who he won promotion to the Chinese Super League with.
