The Brazilian has been out on loan since signing for City for £6m in 2020 from Coritiba in Brazil.

Couto, 22, has spent the last two seasons at City’s sister club Girona in Spain and helped them achieve Champions League qualification for the first time last term.

City are looking to cash in on him but it is also possible 5ft 6in Couto will leave on another loan deal.

Reports back in Brazil suggest he extended his City contract until 2026.

Couto scored one goal and recorded ten assists as Girona finished third in LaLiga — he also made his Brazil debut in October.

Meanwhile, Spurs will battle Manchester City and Liverpool for Leeds midfielder Archie Gray, 18.

Borussia Dortmund have been put off by the Whites’ asking price of £20m but the club will sell after missing out on promotion.

The Championship side need to raise funds this summer through player sales in order to comply with FFP.


This could make negotiations for the promising midfielder easier.

Leeds could also be forced to cash in on Crysencio Summerville and Willy Gnonto.

Summerville earned plenty of plaudits during his starring season in the second division.

Brighton, Chelsea and West Ham are among the clubs believed to be interested in his signature.
