Manchester City could be lining up a move for a new centre midfielder, if recent reports are to be believed.
The turn of the year will see the January transfer window open, with lots of movement expected across the Premier League.
Pep Guardiola's Manchester City have been linked with two top-class centre midfielders in Real Madrid's Luka Modric and Leeds United's Kalvin Phillips, although they may have already suffered a blow in their attempts to sign one of those players.
Several City stars are also being linked with moves away from the Etihad Stadium, and a number are said to be being courted by Spanish giants Barcelona.
The latest of which is Ferran Torres and City are said to have made a big decision about any potential move for the Spain international.
Here are all the latest Man City transfer rumours.
Real Madrid ace Luka Modric is reportedly ready to snub interest from cash-rich Newcastle United in order to join Pep Guardiola's Manchester City.
According to SuperDeporte, Modric is considering his options with his contract up at the end of the season and talks over an extension having stalled.
Modric is reportedly ready to follow in the steps of Frank Lampard and have a spell in Manchester before moving on to New York City, one of the many teams within the City Group's umbrella of clubs.
Kalvin Phillips blow
Manchester United are stepping up their efforts to sign Kalvin Phillips in next summer’s transfer window, according to reports.
Man City and Spurs are said to be monitoring the midfielder, who impressed for England in their run to the final at Euro 2020.
And City could be set to miss out on the player, with the Red Devils said to be ready to launch a £59m bid, according to Spanish outlet Fichajes.
City make Ferran Torres decision
Ferran Torres will have to wait until next summer if he wants to secure a move away from Man City, it has been reported.
Barcelona are said to be keen to bring the Spain international to Camp Nou, but Marca reports that 'the deal is a complicated one which won't be resolved in January'.
It comes after Barca directors reportedly travelled to Manchester to negotiate the deal, but were unsuccessful.
The report adds that Manchester City don't want to loan Torres out, and 'a loan with an obligatory purchase option would not be possible given LaLiga rules'.
