The Citizens have been linked with a number of players in recent months, as Guardiola looks to bolster his squad for the next campaign.

According to Diario Sport, the Citizens are pushing for a deal to secure the services of midfielder Sergi Roberto and have already made their interest known.

It is believed that the Spaniard is a top target for the Premier League outfit, but the report says the player is happy at the Camp Nou.
