Manchester City are one of three teams to have enquired about Juventus forward Paulo Dybala, according to reports in Italy.
The Argentinian international is also interesting Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain but Juve are said to be reluctant to sell.
The Serie A league leaders could, though, be tempted to sell for over €100m (£90m) in a similar situation to what happened with Paul Pogba and Manchester United.
Fans on Twitter are enthusiastic about City signing Dybala, although not all believe the 25-year-old should be a priority in the January transfer window:
At. All. Costs. Would be an utterly amazing signing!

If he comes it would be a great thing.

I think it would be worth it. A proper DM and another LB should take priority of course but there is a definite spot for Dybala on this team

We need to go in strongly for dybala.. He is the perfect cover for kun. We do not have a replacement for kun. At the moment we have a cheap imitation in gabriel. I’m not saying gabriel is bad but he isn’t good enuf if kun gets a long term injury…!

The Argentine’s progress has somewhat stalled this season. He has managed just two goals in the league, although he did score five goals in five Champions League group stage matches.
There are mitigating circumstances, however. Dybala has been shunted onto the right wing this campaign to accommodate Cristiano Ronaldo into the team. He was, therefore, always unlikely to match the 26 goals he scored in all competitions last season.
