Manchester City are tracking highly-rated Sevilla left-back Alberto Moreno.

The 21-year-old, who has two caps for Spain, is being considered as a long-term replacement for Gael Clichy at the Etihad Stadium.

City have sent scouting delegations to a handful of Sevilla games towards the end of last year and over the past fortnight, with sporting director Txiki Begiristain and manager Manuel Pellegrini both big fans of the full-back.

Moreno has been heavily linked to Napoli in recent weeks, with Sevilla said to have turned down an offer from the Italian outfit on Monday as they want to keep hold of the youngster until at least the end of the season. Real Madrid and Chelsea are also thought to be keeping tabs on the defender.

However City, who have a strong relationship with Sevilla following the signings of Jesus Navas and Alvaro Negredo this summer, are confident over a move should they choose to pursue Moreno.

The Andalusian outfit value Moreno, who is close to both Negredo and Navas having come through Sevilla’s youth ranks, at between €20-25 million.

City have been linked with a move for Southampton youngster Luke Shaw, but Goal understands that Chelsea are leading the race for the teenager.

Southampton have slapped a €30m price tag on the Saints prodigy after the Blues made an enquiry for him earlier in January.
