Manchester City have enquired about Ghana international Thomas Partey's availability, according to the Transfer Window Podcast.
The English Premier League champions are desperate to strengthen their midfield, and while head coach Pep Guardiola has repeatedly stated that the club won't be spending any money in January, a spate of injuries could turn his hand.
Fernandinho's absence due to injury in the last two matches has come at a cost for the Citizens who fell to successive defeats without their talisman in midfield.
Partey has been earmarked as the perfect deputy to the Brazilian having continued to impress for Atletico Madrid.
Despite stating that he is happy at the Wanda Metropolitano, a big money bid could persuade the Spanish LaLiga club to sell.
Partey has racked up 118 appearances for Atletico, scoring 11 goals and assisting a further nine.
