Man City interested in Real Betis fullback Junior Firpo

Manchester City are interested in Real Betis fullback Junior Firpo.

The young defender has flirted with Real Madrid in recent weeks, while he's also been linked with Barcelona as they seek cover for Jordi Alba.

The Manchester Evening News says City are keen as manager Pep Guardiola targets a new fullback addition.

City scouts are convinced Firpo is the real deal and have recommended they immediately move for the 22 year-old.

Just this weekend, Firpo branded the axing of coach Quique Setien as "unfair" amid claims he is weighing up his own future.
