Sevilla winger Jesus Navas has revealed that he would be interested in a move to Manchester City this summer, reports Sky Sports.

The 27-year-old has been heavily linked with a Premier League switch, amid reports Manuel Pellegrini is an admirer of the Spain international.

Pellegrini is expected to replace Roberto Mancini at the Etihad Stadium, and having watched Navas closely in La Liga, the former Malaga boss has made the attacking midfielder one of his priority signings.

Ahead of the Chilean coach's anticipated appointment, Navas has confirmed his desire to join the ranks at Manchester City, and could link up with the club as soon as the transfer window reopens on July 1.

"I like Manchester City a lot and it has great players," he told Spanish publication Marca

"Manchester City has done all it can to bring me in and I have to be grateful for that. I want to go on and win trophies."

He added: "I'm now open to anything. I want to win more and reach my goals."

Navas is rated at £25million, and certainly looks set to leave the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan before the start of the 2013/14 campaign, with Sevilla boss Unai Emery admitting that the player is almost certainly out of the exit door.

"Everything indicates he will leave," Emery is quoted by The Sun.
