Therefore City are considering offloading him while they are able tio get something in return and have their sights set on Juventus’ Arthur, according to reports in Italy.

A player-swap deal has been proposed with Juve keen to sign a new central midfielder this summer after Paul Pogba picked up a long-term injury.

Additionally, Aaron Ramsey has left the club and joined Nice.

Arthur, 25, signed from Barcelona in an eye-watering £68million deal back in 2020.

Since making the switch to the Serie A club he has scored once and provided just one assist struggling to find his best form.

The Brazilian started only 16 games last season as Juventus finished 4th in the league.

Gundogan, 31, is a fan’s favourite at City after an inspired performance helped them win the Premier League on the final day of last season.

The German has won four league titles at City playing 252 times netting 49 goals and 33 assists.

If the reported player-swap deal does go ahead then it will be the second time Man City and Juventus have done so after Danilo and Joao Cancelo switched clubs three years ago.

Arthur may not be the only player Pep Guardiola signs in the next few weeks with him keen to add a left-back to the squad.

They are no longer in for Marc Cucurella but could move for Alex Grimaldo.
