Il Corriere dello Sport understands that Manchester City are readying summer bid for Inter Milan goalkeeper Samir Handanovic.
The Slovenian shot-stopper surprisingly signed a new deal at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in January despite heavy interest from abroad, but he could still be leaving for greener pastures at the end of the season.
Namely, it is believed that new Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is not entirely happy with Joe Hart and he plans to recruit a new number one.
Recent reports suggested that the Catalan coach could make a move on Barcelona star Claudio Bravo, but it has now been revealed that Samir Handanovic is on his radar as well.
Manchester City scouts have been regular at Inter Milan matches of late and it is thought that the 31-year-old was their main point of interest.
The Etihad outfit will be hoping to revive their Premier League title bid when they host red-hot Tottenham Hotspur, with the Citizens priced at 1/1 to emerge victorious.
