Pep Calls African Star To Convince Him Of Move

With Pep Guardiola already planning for next season, the Spanish tactician has reportedly given a certain African star a phone call to convince him to join Manchester City.

Guardiola's Brother Reveals Pep's Next Move?

AC Milan midfielder Ismael Bennacer has emerged as a potential transfer target for the Citizens ahead of the 2020/21 campaign following his impressive performances in Serie A this season.

The 22-year-old was also named both the Best Player and Best Young Player of the Africa Cup of Nations after his remarkable displays for Algeria alongside City star Riyad Mahrez in Egypt last year.

RMC Sport has now reported that Guardiola has been on the phone with the young midfielder to talk him into a switch to the reigning Premier League champions.

Bennacer is believed to have a release clause of £45 million (R956) in his contract with Milan, a figure City could be looking to trigger in the coming months.

The young midfielder was born in France but switched his international allegiance in 2016, and has since represented the Desert Foxes on 22 occasions.

After beginning his career at AC Arles in his country of birth, Bennacer joined Arsenal in 2015, and following a loan spell at Tours, left for Empoli in Italy two years later.
