Manchester City reportedly hold an interest in signing young Atletico Paranaense defender Lucas Halter during the summer transfer window.

Atletico Paranaense defender Lucas Halter has reportedly emerged as a transfer target for Manchester City.

With City having already secured the Premier League title, manager Pep Guardiola is in a position where he can begin to consider potential signings during the summer window.

Midfield trio Jorginho, Fred and Andres Iniesta have all been linked with a switch to the Etihad Stadium but it appears that Guardiola is also looking to add highly-regarded prospects to his squad.

According to The Mirror, Halter is very much on the radar of Guardiola, with the 17-year-old having earned a call-up to Brazil's Under-20 squad.

The centre-back - who has already featured in a number of first-team squads - is also said to be interesting Atletico Madrid and Roma.
