Manchester City will have to close the eight-point gap between them and Arsenal if they are to retain their Premier League title this season. 

Pep Guardiola’s side currently sit in second place although they do have a game-in-hand on their rivals, who extended their lead with a 4-1 win over Crystal Palace before the international break.

When the Premier League does return, City will welcome Liverpool to The Etihad for a game that could have huge implications for both sides.

In the meantime, it appears that The Citizens are in the hunt for a Chelsea star.

According to 90min, both City and rivals Manchester United are interested in midfielder Mateo Kovacic.

The Croatia international has established himself as one of the best midfielders in the Premier League over the past two seasons, but his future at Stamford Bridge looks increasingly uncertain.

The report claims that both City and United, along with Liverpool, are exploring the possibility of signing the Croat this summer.

Kovacic has reportedly attracted interest from Man City, Man United and Liverpool

In January, Chelsea splashed a Premier League record £107 million on Enzo Fernandez from Benfica, although the Argentina international’s arrival doesn’t seem to have impacted Kovacic’s playing time.

The 28-year-old has started Chelsea’s last three league games, captaining them to a 3-1 win over Leicester City earlier this month.

Kovacic joined Chelsea from Real Madrid back in 2018, initially on loan, before making the move permanent the following year.

Since then, he has made more than 210 appearances for The Blues, winning five trophies including the Champions League in 2021.

Despite that, his current contract is due to expire next summer and he continues to be linked with a move away from west London.

It is claimed that all three interested clubs are looking to bolster their respective midfield departments this summer, and see Kovacic as a potential candidate to do just that.
