Leeds United face a battle to sign top January target Dan James when the summer transfer window opens after a top Premier League side entered the race.
According to The Sun, Manchester City are keen to land £7m Swansea City winger James, who was linked with Leeds in January.
Leeds failed to get a deal over the line for the Wales international, who has since added to his growing reputation with exciting performances in high-profile games.
James played a starring role in the FA Cup quarter-final clash between Swansea and Manchester City, helping his side go 2-0 up before they lost 3-2.
This caught the eye of Pep Guardiola, who could launch a bid for the speedy and skilful winger.
Leeds might struggle to land the 21-year-old with Man City now in the hunt for his signature. The lure of playing for the Premier League champions under Guardiola would be tempting.
But the Whites could offer James more first-team opportunities in the immediate future. If he chooses to leave Swansea, he needs to think about the best possible move for his career.
James is a very exciting talent and he showed exactly what he could do by netting on his competitive Wales debut.
If Leeds can beat Man City to win the race for the lively winger, then they could have a current and future star in their ranks.
