boss Pep Guardiola is eyeing a move for Barcelona midfielder Sergi Roberto. The City boss is currently scouring the market for signings to bolster his team's chances of wrestling the Premier League title from Liverpool's clutches next season.

Liverpool are on course to end City's dominance of the league, with Jurgen Klopp's troops a staggering 25 points ahead of the defending champions.

The manner in which City have relinquished the title is said to have prompted Guardiola to already begin planning for next season.

And according to reports, the Spaniard has identified Roberto as a player to help City reclaim the title.

Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo claim City's interest in the versatile Roberto, who can also play at full-back, is on "record".

Manchester City are keen on signing Sergi Roberto from Barcelona

Barcelona are said to be open to doing business with City, but only if the reigning Premier League champions sign Roberto on a permanent deal.

City director Txiki Begiristain, who used to be on the board at Barca, is said to be aware of the Spanish champions' openness to selling Roberto and is reportedly awaiting the green light from the Catalans to commence negotiations.

Barcelona's willingness to let Roberto leave the Nou Camp stems from their pursuits of Inter Milan and Juventus aces Lautaro Martinez and Morale Pjanic.

Roberto, 28, is a product of Barcelona's famous La Masia academy.

The Spain international made his debut in the 2010-11 season at the tender age of 18.

Roberto has made a total of 274 appearances for Barca, scoring nine goals for the club.

Roberto has thoroughly enjoyed his time at the Nou Camp, recently telling the Soccerbible: I joined FC Barcelona when I was 14.

"At that time, and until I was 16, I was living at home in Reus, so I came here every day for training and then I returned to my home with my parents.

"Then I moved to La Masia, where I was living and training with the rest of my team-mates.

"So yes, we could say that this is my home as well."

He added: "I've been a FC Barcelona fan since I was a little kid.

"So, every day, when I come here for training and I see that big FC Barcelona badge, when I put on that Barça training shirt, it feels like it’s a dream come true."
