Manchester City could be about to make a major move in the transfer market, according to Sky Sources.

Sky Sports News HQ understands City are preparing a £19m bid for Borussia Dortmund midfielder Julian Weigl.

Weigl, 20, has represented Germany at Under-21 level and for added intrigue, Pep Guardiola - who has been strongly linked with City - is a known admirer of Weigl and was disappointed not to sign him in the past.
