Manchester City are locked in talks with Juventus over a deal to sign Portuguese full-back Joao Cancelo, reports have claimed.

City have just announced that Kyle Walker has penned a new two-year deal with the club, but that is not stopping suggestions that Cancelo could also arrive at the Etihad Stadium.

City boss Pep Guardiola is keen to strengthen the position further and is said to be closing in on a swoop for the former Valencia star, who only joined Juve last season.

The Bianconeri paid £40million to secure a deal and City will have to go way above that to land the 25-year-old Portuguese star, but a deal is not far away.

Reports emanating from Italy have suggested that the player has already agreed terms with City and it now comes down to the two clubs to hammer out a fee before the deal can be rubberstamped.

Cancelo made 34 appearances for Juve and was an integral part of the side that went on to win an eighth successive Scudetto title, but they will still sell at the right price.
