According to France Football, that has seen the 26-year-old emerge as a prime transfer target for Manchester City, with incoming manager Pep Guardiola reportedly a huge fan.

The Citizens are widely expected to sign a striker to compliment Sergio Aguero this summer, following an underwhelming 18 months from January 2015 signing Wilfried Bony.

However, there’s plenty of rival interest in Dortmund’s star striker, with France Football also documenting El Clasico giants Barcelona and Real Madrid as potential summer suitors.

The French news outlet further allege that the Citizens are also targeting FC Schalke’s prodigious winger Leroy Sane, who finished the season with eight goals and six assists in 33 Bundesliga outings.
