Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is plotting surprise transfer move for Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Winks this summer.
The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager recently completed the signing of Nathan Ake and Ferran Torres from Valencia.
He has now made Winks, who signed a new five-year contract with Spurs only last year under former boss Mauricio Pochettino his latest target.
The 24-year-old’s chances of adequate playing time is threatened with the arrival of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg from Southampton.

Spurs chiefs don’t often do transfer business with top-six Premier League teams but Jose Mourinho is desperately looking to build the team with his kind of players.
SunSport believes the North Londoners appear they will not entertain any offer lesser than £40 million from interested clubs.
Guardiola is gunning for the midfielder having been perceived as a Spanish-style midfielder who is excellent in possession. He is also regarded as ‘very much a Pep player and not a Jose player’.
Winks might be relegated to the bench after Spurs gave their best to land Hojbjerg despite stiff competition from Everton.

Meanwhile, despite Mourinho’s problems with £56m club-record signing Tanguy Ndombele, it is unlikely that the Frenchman would leave this summer.
He seems to be attracting nothing close to the amount Spurs paid to sign him from Lyon last summer.
Bioreports earlier reported that Manchester City are interested in the signing of Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly and the Citizens are ready to go for his signature.
Pep Guardiola and his men failed to retain their Premier League title at the just concluded season in which Liverpool were crowned champions.
The Citizens are now ready to bolster their squad so as for them to compete excellently in all competitions next season.
