​Man City boss Guardiola prioritising midfield signing as Bellingham scouted

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola wants to sign a top class central midfielder next summer.

The Citizens have been busy improving their squad over the past few years, ensuring Guardiola has the tools to challenge on all fronts.

While they have the players to contend for the Premier League and Champions League this term, they are always looking to the future.

According to the Daily Mail, Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham is a key target for City.

Guardiola believes that Bellingham has the quality to slot into the City midfield for years to come.

The two sides went head-to-head in the Champions League on Wednesday, with Bellingham scoring in vain for BVB as they lost 2-1 to City.

Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool are also keen on the England international.
