Manchester City are keeping tabs on Eintracht Frankfurt forward Luka Jovic, Goal understands.
The striker is on a two-year loan from Benfica and Frankfurt are hopeful they can trigger a clause to sign him outright for €6 million (£5.3m/$6.8m) this summer, before selling him on for €60m (£52m/$68m).
Barcelona, for their part, hope to sign him for €40m (£34.3m) and that kind of price would appeal to City, who have prioritised other areas for reinforcement in the upcoming transfer window.
The Premier League champions will move for a holding midfielder and a left-back, but sources have told Goal that they have been monitoring Jovic closely in recent months.
It is not yet clear whether City are ready to make a concrete move, as the Premier League club have form when it comes to biding their time over transfer targets.
