Manchester City are reportedly prepared to rival Chelsea in the race to secure the signature of Atletico Madrid defender Jose Gimenez.

Atletico Madrid defender Jose Gimenez has reportedly emerged as a target for Manchester City.

With Nathan Ake and Ferran Torres likely to move to the Etihad Stadium in the near future, there are signs that Pep Guardiola is being proactive in the transfer market.

According to ESPN, the City boss wants to make another addition in the form of Gimenez, who has starred for Atletico in recent seasons.

Although regarded as a key man at Wanda Metrpolitano, the Spanish giants may be open to cashing in on one of their most prized assets due to the financial implications of the coronavirus pandemic.

Nevertheless, it is claimed that Atletico officials are currently demanding that any interested team, which allegedly includes Chelsea, activate the Uruguay international's £110m release clause.

The centre-back still has three years remaining on his contract.
