Barcelona midfielder Nico Gonzalez emerges as a transfer target for Manchester City, according to a report.

Manchester City are reportedly weighing up a move for Barcelona midfielder Nico Gonzalez.

The 19-year-old has made the breakthrough into the first team at Camp Nou this season, featuring on six occasions in all competitions, including five outings in La Liga.

Gonzalez has a contract at Camp Nou until June 2024, but Barcelona's financial problems has placed them in a difficult position when it comes to improving the deals of their highly-rated youngsters.

According to Fichajes, Man City boss Pep Guardiola is an admirer of the Spaniard and could urge his club to submit an offer during next summer's transfer window.

The report claims that the Citizens want to sign a new central midfielder next year, as Fernandinho prepares to leave the club on a free transfer.

Gonzalez featured on 27 occasions for Barcelona B before making the breakthrough into the first team, and he played 45 minutes of Saturday's La Liga clash with Atletico Madrid at Wanda Metropolitano.
