Manchester City have reportedly made preliminary contact with Barcelona over a move for Samuel Umtiti.
The Premier League champions are expected to sign a new centre-back this summer having seen long-serving captain Vincent Kompany leave ahead of the 2019-20 campaign.
However, according to le10sport, Umtiti has now emerged as a target for Pep Guardiola's side.
The report claims that City have made preliminary contact over a potential deal for the France international, although the English club are yet to decide whether to submit an official offer.
The 25-year-old, who has also been linked with Arsenal, only signed a new deal at Camp Nou last summer and is contracted to his Spanish club until the end of the 2022-23 campaign.
