The €47m-rated midfielder scored a memorable Champions League hat-trick against City – albeit in a losing cause – during a 6-3 defeat for the German outfit last month.

The report says the player does not have a release clause, and his entourage say enquiries have been ‘piling up’, especially from England, Italy and Spain.
The Frenchman, who s believed to have caught the eye of Pep Guardiola, still has three years remaining on his contract with Leipzig, who are under no pressure to sell one of their star players.
In reaction to the report shared on Twitter by City Xtra, many Man City fans have expressed their thoughts and opinions.

Very very clinical, can play out wide, in a false 9 and in midfield. I love him, but this doesn’t mean we shouldn’t sign a striker

The PSG’s product can be a massive signing for us. He’s a complete player.
