Manchester City are set to step up their efforts to sign Monaco youngster Layvin Kurzawa, as reported by the Daily Star.
This would put them in direct competition with both Chelsea and Manchester United, who have both targeted the talented 22 year old star.
Reports in France suggest that Kurzawa was welcomed as a guest by City on Tuesday night to watch their match against Pep Guardiola’s Bayern Munich.
City won that match 3-2 in dramatic circumstances, giving them a fighting chance of progressing to the knockout stages of the Champions League, a competition they have struggled in in recent years.
Kurzawa has been tracked by a series of top sides in Europe, including Man Utd and Chelsea, with Man Utd said to have been tracking him since David Moyes’ time in charge of the club.
However, a move for any side will not be easy, with Kurzawa having recently signed a new deal with Monaco to keep him at the club until 2018.
