Manchester City have reportedly been told by Inter Milan that they must pay at least €80m (£71.3m) for defensive target Milan Skriniar.
The 25-year-old is approaching the end of his third season with Inter and has been tipped to leave San Siro in the summer.
Italian outlet Tuttosport suggests that the Citizens have held initial talks with Inter over a deal for the Slovakia international, who will not be sold on the cheap.
Antonio Conte's side are not actively looking to cash in on Skriniar, it is claimed, but they will seriously consider a sale should City match his valuation with their offer.
Skriniar has made 32 appearances in all competitions this season and is under contract with Inter until 2023.
