Manchester City are eyeing a move for Chelsea left-back Ian Maatsen who is yet to extend his Chelsea contract, according to 90min.

Maatsen enjoyed an excellent loan spell with Burnley last season and returned to Stamford Bridge this summer with just 12 months remaining on his contract.

After Maatsen rejected a move to Burnley this summer, Chelsea have attempted to convince Maatsen to sign a new deal but the 21-year-old Dutchman is yet to agree terms.

Maatsen’s expiring contract has attracted interest from a number of sides across Europe including Manchester City.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is keen on signing a natural left-back and Manchester City have identified Maatsen as an ideal signing.

Talks between Maatsen and Chelsea will continue over the coming weeks with regards to an extension and Chelsea are reportedly hopeful an agreement will be reached soon.
