Lodi is the latest left-back on Man City’s radar

Manchester City are interested in Atletico Madrid left-back Renan Lodi.

The reigning Premier League champions seek to fill a void at left-back following Oleksandr Zinchenko’s move to Arsenal. Sergio Gomez is on the verge of arriving from Anderlecht. The £11 million signing, however, could be loaned out, meaning Man City are considering alternatives.

Lodi is one player on Pep Guardiola’s list, but the 24-year-old Brazilian won’t come cheap. Raphael Guerreiro (Dortmund), Borna Sosa (Stuttgart), Kieran Tierney (Arsenal), and Rayan Ait-Nouri (Wolves) are also under consideration. [Telegraph – subscription required]
