Despite reportedly sealing the deal with Dani Alves from Juventus, Guardiola is looking for ways to bring one more fullback at the Etihad.

Earlier this week, Juventus general director Giuseppe Marotta confirmed the Brazilian worldwide has asked to leave the Serie A champions this summer.

According to the Daily Mail, Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is frustrated at the lack of progress in the club's pursuit of Tottenham defender Kyle Walker.

The Brazilian is expected to move to England and though Chelsea are interested in the veteran full-back, Manchester City are believed to be the frontrunners to sign him on a free transfer. I don't know what's happening. "It's news you're giving me first-hand, that I asked to leave".

The England global did though lose his place in Pochettino's side towards the end of last season, with Kieran Trippier receiving more playing time as Spurs seemingly prepared for Walker's exit. I have left the work to my agents in Italy and they have said they would talk to me once they find a resolution on the contract.

Alves told Brazilian talk show Conversa com Bial (via Manchester Evening News): "Leaving Juve on a free transfer?"

"City? Everyone knows about my admiration for Pep Guardiola..."

"If I get out (of Juventus), it'll be without any fights, no problems, contrary to what they're saying".
