Manchester City are reportedly close to closing a €90m (£77.5m) deal for RB Leipzig defender Yosko Guardiola.
Leipzig are reportedly seeking a €100m (£86m) fee for Croatia.
However, it looks like City were able to make the transfer and Guardiol is expected to undergo a medical later this week.
Guardiol will add competition on City’s left wing, helping Croatia reach the semi-finals of the 2022 World Cup and then the Nations League final, where they lost to Spain.
Midfielder Mateo Kovacic is City’s only summer player so far, having joined from Chelsea in June.
City captain Ilkay Gundogan left for Barcelona on a free transfer, while Riyad Mahrez completed a £30m move to Saudi club Al Ahly last week.
The Premier League champions will take on Arsenal in the FA Community Shield at Wembley on Sunday.
