Manchester City are reportedly contemplating whether to move for Borussia Dortmund defender Raphael Guerreiro on a free transfer.
On Saturday, City secured their second piece of silverware of the season as they defeated Manchester United by a 2-1 scoreline in the FA Cup final.
Pep Guardiola's side will now attempt to win the treble by overcoming Inter Milan in next weekend's Champions League final, an achievement that would crown their recent dominance.
However, despite their outstanding efforts during 2022-23, City will be in the market for fresh faces this summer, particularly at left-back where they have encountered issues.
Nathan Ake has since proven to be a hit in the position, deputising there rather than being deployed at centre-back, but his injury issues mean that he cannot necessarily be relied upon in the long term.
Versatile full-back Rico Lewis, who remains just 18 years of age, will not be considered for weekly involvement just yet, while Sergio Gomez has not done enough to show that he can be a permanent member of the squad.
Manuel Akanji, like Ake, has excelled in an unfamiliar role when required, yet that has seemingly not stopped Guardiola from finding a new option for that area of the pitch.
According to The Sun, the Spaniard is eager to take advantage of Guerreiro's availability as a free agent.
The left-sided player has just chipped in with six goals and 14 assists in all competitions this season, helping lead Dortmund to the brink of the Bundesliga title before they slipped up on the final day of the season.
Guerreiro, who will turn 30 years of age in December, is taking the opportunity to end a seven-year stint at the Westfalenstadion, where he has contributed 40 goals and 50 assists from 224 appearances.
Although Bayern Munich are allegedly monitoring the situation, City are prepared to edge out one of this season's European foes to kick-start their summer business.
Furthermore, it is claimed that City may allow Gomez to make a loan switch to Burnley, where he would be managed by City legend Vincent Kompany after the pair previously worked together at Anderlecht.
