AC Milan are allegedly considering an approach for Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola, despite appointing Stefano Pioli earlier this month.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has allegedly emerged as a target for AC Milan.

The Italian giants have endured somewhat of a fall from grace in recent seasons, with the club no longer considered challengers for the Serie A title and financial issues leading to a ban from European football.

Milan officials have also made two changes in the dugout since the summer, which has arguably led to the team sitting in 12th position in the top-flight standings.

However, despite the appointment of Stefano Pioli earlier this month, reports in Spain suggest that Milan are interested in bringing in Guardiola for the next campaign.

While the hugely-successful manager has a contract at the Etihad Stadium until 2021, City are expected to offer fresh terms in the coming months.

The 48-year-old has never managed a club from Italy, although the former defensive midfielder did feature for Brescia and Roma during his playing days.
