City are also closing in on Celta Vigo winger Nolito, with the Spain international flattered with the interest shown by Guardiola and Barcelona boss Luis Enrique.
He told The Sun: “It is a matter of pride if two major coaches like Luis Enrique and Guardiola notice you and are interested.
“I am lucky that I am being considered and that strengthens me. But I’m focused on the Euros and nothing else. I have not spoken to either of them.”
