Jesus Navas could be set for a summer switch to Manchester City, with his current club Sevilla stating "everything indicates he will leave."

Navas has been linked with a move to the Premier League in recent weeks, and mooted incoming City boss Manuel Pellegrini is understood to be a keen admirer of the 27-year-old.

As transfer talk increases, Sevilla boss Unai Emery admitted in the Sun newspaper: "Everything indicates he will leave."

The winger is also being pursued by Liverpool and Real Madrid, but earlier hinted his preference for joining Pellegrini at City. He said: "Manchester City are a team I like."

It is reported Sevilla would be willing to listen offers in the region of £25 million for Navas this summer.
