It seems the Premier League champions have joined the race to sign Bayer Leverkusen's 18-year-old attacking midfielder Florian Wirtz.
The teenager has already made 53 senior appearances for his club, during which he has contributed to 26 goals, and has also featured three times for the Germany national team.
Following a strong start to the new season, Wirtz has reportedly attracted attention from several clubs in Europe, including the Citizens, Manchester United, Arsenal and Bayern Munich.
According to Bild, Guardiola has personally requested that City scouts travel to Germany to get a closer look at the player, who has a five-year contract at Leverkusen.
"Pep Guardiola has sent scouts to Leverkusen time and time again recently to watch him," Bild journalist Christian Falk said.
"There are, of course, a few others [scouts] sitting there from Chelsea, United, Arsenal and Liverpool. So many, many Premier League clubs are interested, but City very specifically.
"We do know, though, that he's not in a hurry to move to the Premier League just yet. The young man Florian Wirtz is still developing at Leverkusen, and there have already been talks with FC Bayern, which, of course, are only indirect.
"So that's the responsibility of his father and his adviser. It does seem that Bayern have a very, very good chance of being the next step."
