Premier League holders Manchester City are hot on the trail of FC Porto stars Yacine Brahimi and Alex Sandro, according to the Daily Mail.
The Citizens are desperate to reinforce the squad following what has been an utterly disappointing season and they will attempt to lure the Dragons footballers to the Etihad.
Manchester City sporting director Txiki Begiristain watched the duo in action several times this season and he was present as Bayern hammered Porto 6-1 on Tuesday.
The Citizens are well aware that both Brahimi and Alex Sandro have a long list of suitors among Europe’s top sides, but they believe the fact they have already done business with the Dragons will give them the upper hand.
Manchester City recruited Eliaquim Mangala and Fernando from Estadio do Dragao last summer and now two more players can follow in their footsteps.
The Citizens have yet to secure another Champions League qualification and they can be backed at 1/4 favourites to defeat Aston Villa at the weekend.
