West Ham and Leeds have also shown interest during the summer and City will listen to offers for Herrera – who was signed by the City Football Group in 2017.

Pep Guardiola had thought about adding him to his squad for this season but Fernandinho’s contract extension means that is unlikely.

City have already raised around £50million this season through the sales of Lukas Nmecha, Angelino and Jack Harrison, along with their sell-on clause in Jadon Sancho.

The funds are expected to be used in their pursuit of Tottenham striker Harry Kane and Aston Villa playmaker Jack Grealish.

Meanwhile, Juventus appear ready to firm up their interest in City striker Gabriel Jesus.

And that would give Guardiola another forward-line headache with the new season just over four weeks away.

Juve coach Max Allegri has made Brazilian Jesus, 24, his No 1 target, but the club face a financial mess.

City want cash up front as they chase a new striker.

Kane remains Guardiola’s preferred choice – with club sources dismissing links with Antoine Griezmann, Danny Ings and Robert Lewandowski.

Meanwhile Juve’s interest in Jesus will raise more questions about the future of former Manchester United man Cristiano Ronaldo.

Paulo Dybala is poised to sign a new deal with the Turin club.

But Allegri is looking to freshen up his attack as he bids to take the crown back off Inter next season.
