Manchester City are reportedly considering whether to make a bid for Southampton midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.
While the Denmark international has previously been regarded as a key man at St Mary's, the 24-year-old was recently stripped of the captaincy due to his desire to leave this summer.
With just one year remaining on his contract, Tottenham Hotspur have been heavily linked with an approach for the player before the beginning of next season.
However, according to the Daily Record, City are also monitoring the situation as they contemplate making new additions.
Although Pep Guardiola is well stocked for options in the middle of the pitch, City could arguably benefit from having a box-to-box midfielder in their ranks.
Despite his contract situation, Southampton may demand in excess of £15m for Hojbjerg.
