Goal learned that Pep Guardiola's side are close to striking a deal for the 21-year-old Mexico international winger.

Lozano, nicknamed 'Chucky', has also been linked with Manchester United in the past as a result of his impressive form in Liga MX in the past three years.

However, Andres Fassi has claimed that Benfica, along with PSV, Celta Vigo and Real Sociedad, have all made bids to sign a player he fully expects to move to Europe in the coming months.

"At this moment, I can only say that Benfica is a possibility for Lozano," he told Portuguese publication Record.

"We have an offer from Benfica, but there are others from PSV, Celta and Real Sociedad.

"I can tell you that the offer from Benfica is not the highest but the player will also have a say in this. It's certain that he'll go to Europe this summer. We also have offers from Mexico, but Lozano feels as though he is at a level to make the leap to a more competitive league."

City will look to loan Lozano out to another European side for the next two seasons if they are able to reach an agreement.

He finished as the top scorer in Pachuca's triumphant CONCACAF Champions League campaign in 2016-17, registering eight goals and two assists in his eight appearances.
