Manchester City parted ways with long-time servant, Riyad Mahrez, last month.
This leaves the Sky Blues without a natural right-winger heading into the new season.
Bernardo Silva can operate out wide and Phil Foden has been used on the right on occasion in pre-season.
However, Manchester City are seemingly looking to secure a natural replacement for the Algerian.
The first name tipped to replace Mahrez was Michael Olise of Crystal Palace, but Chelsea appear to be leading that race now.
Rennes winger Jeremy Doku was then dubbed a potential target earlier this week.
Now, Manchester City have been linked with a move for Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Florian Wirtz as a Riyad Mahrez replacement.
Wirtz missed a lot of the 2022/23 campaign due to injury, but he still scored one and assisted six in 17 Bundesliga outings when he returned from his cruciate ligament rupture.
And now, the 20-year-old is back on track and his recent performances under Xabi Alonso have caught the eye of the City officials, according to Football Transfers.
