Manchester City are reportedly lining up a move for Bayer Leverkusen winger Leon Bailey if, as expected, Leroy Sane leaves the club to join Bayern Munich.
Sane - who has not featured since August after suffering knee ligament damage in City's Community Shield win over Liverpool - has been long linked with Bayern, and it is expected that he will seal a move when the transfer window re-opens.
Although City already have a wealth of attacking options, Pep Guardiola would still be keen to add another wide threat if Sane moves on to add to the likes of Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez.
And according to the Daily Mail the club are closely monitoring Bailey's progress, and have liked what they've seen from the youngster.
The 22-year-old has had an impressive season in the Bundesliga, scoring five goals and creating one assist, while he also netted against Rangers in a 3-1 victory at Ibrox in their Europa League last-16 first leg.
The likes of Arsenal have also been linked with Bailey in the past, but City are thought to be in the driving seat for his signature, with Leverkusen likely to let the player leave if they receive a bid of around £40m.
Bailey started his career at Belgian side Genk before moving to Germany in 2017. Since then he has become an important part of the first-team, and last season made 39 appearances in all competitions.
He has also won seven caps for Jamaica and is tipped to go on and join an elite European club in the near future.
Bailey will likely next be in action when Leverkusen host Wolfburg on Tuesday evening looking to continue their quest for Champions League football, with the side currently sitting in fourth place in the Bundesliga, just one point above Monchengladbach.
