Man City eyeing Borussia Dortmund midfielder Julian Weigl

Manchester City are eyeing Borussia Dortmund midfielder Julian Weigl.

The Times says Weigl as they seek cover for Fernandinho.

Pep Guardiola wants another midfielder having missed out on Brazilian Fred to Manchester United.

Only 21-year-old Philippe Sandler has been drafted in from Dutch side PEC Zwolle to boost the Premier League champions' ranks in that area.

Guardiola has sent scouts to watch defensive midfielder Weigl, 22.

The City boss admitted finding a substitute for Fernandinho is his only target before the transfer window shuts on Thursday.
