Manchester City are considering a surprise move for USA goalkeeper Zack Steffen.
The Sun says City has targeted Steffen as a shock No2 at the Etihad.
And Columbus Crew's Steffen, 23, is being lined up for a £5million move to the Premier League champions.
City's scouts have faith in the MLS star being a star of the future and want to secure his future before sorting out a work permit.
Pep would ideally want Steffen as No2 for the second half of the season as Bravo is expected to miss the campaign with a ruptured Achilles suffered during a freak training-ground friendly.
He could keep Arijanet Muric as back-up until Steffen is eligible, as Steffen needs to play in 75% of internationals in the last two years or appeal as a "special talent" exemption.
