Man City, Barcelona tracking Sassuolo youngster Pol Lirola

Manchester City's search for a new left-back has led them to Sassuolo youngster Pol Lirola.

The 19 year-old was superb in the Europa League against Athletic Bilbao last week and is now on the radar of major clubs.

Gazzetta dello Sport says City and Barcelona are watching Lirola's progress and will monitor the youngster this season.

Juventus, meanwhile, are confident they're in the boxseat for the fullback should Barca or City firm up their interest.

Sassuolo snapped up Lirola from Juve a year ago and the Bianconeri have an option to buy him outright for €2 million inside the next two years.
