MANCHESTER CITY want to sign Aston Villa star Jack Grealish this summer, according to reports.

Pep Guardiola is eager to strengthen his side, following their Champions League final disappointment.

Finding a new striker to replace Sergio Aguero is key to City's agenda.

But securing Grealish's signature is of 'equal' importance, according to ESPN.

They also claim that Guardiola is insistent that City must pounce on Grealish ahead of rivals Manchester United, should Villa be willing to do business.

The Midlanders are believed to value their captain at around £100million.

City have been 'encouraged' that a deal could be done by Villa's £33m acquisition of Norwich's fellow creator Emi Buendia.

Guardiola, 50, believes that Grealish could spark a 'devastating' partnership with England team-mate Phil Foden.

City also consider Spurs talisman Harry Kane as an important target this summer.

Kane, 27, is thought to be their main target up front – ahead of Borussia Dortmund hotshot Erling Haaland.

The England captain hinted that a move to City would be his preference, when he told Gary Neville that Kevin De Bruyne is the Premier League star that he'd most like to play with.

Kane scored 23 goals and assisted a further 14 in the Prem this season – but was beaten to PFA Player of the Year by De Bruyne.

It had been reported that City could use the likes of Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling as bait to sign Kane.

But SunSport last night exclusively revealed that chairman Daniel Levy is only interested in a straight cash deal for Kane – and wants at least £150m.
