The future of Rodri at Manchester City has been questioned.
The Mirror says City are targeting a new defensive midfielder this summer – and manager Pep Guardiola is an admirer of West Ham's Declan Rice.
The Hammers' current £100million-plus valuation of the England midfielder is too rich for City.
But the fact that Guardiola does not want to lose Fernandinho puts doubts over the future of £62million Spaniard Rodri.
The 24-year-old made 53 appearances for City last season but was left on the bench when City lost to Chelsea in Porto.
