Manchester City reportedly identifty Mikel Oyarzabal - who has a £67m release clause in his Real Sociedad deal - as a top target for the summer of 2022.

Manchester City have identified Real Sociedad winger Mikel Oyarzabal as a priority transfer target for the summer of 2022, according to a report.

The 24-year-old has risen through the youth ranks at Sociedad and enjoyed a stellar 2020-21 campaign, registering 11 goals and eight assists in 33 La Liga matches.

City forked out a British transfer record sum of £100m to prise Jack Grealish away from Aston Villa in the most recent transfer window, and Pep Guardiola's side are expected to be in the market for a new centre-forward at the end of this season.

However, Eurosport claims that Oyarzabal - predominantly a left-winger - is on the radar of City chiefs, who could now seek to trigger his £67m release clause next summer.

The report adds that the Citizens are unlikely to reignite their pursuit of Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane, but Bernardo Silva's possible exit will open up space for more attacking acquisitions.

Oyarzabal already boasts four goals from four La Liga games this season and impressed with Spain at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, banking three goals and two assists en route to the silver medal.
