According to a report from French news outlet Soccer Link, Man City are interested in a swoop for RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano this summer – with the defender currently being valued at €58 million (£51.8 million).
Indeed, as per this report, Upamecano is having to reconsider other clubs following Bayern Munich’s withdrawal from the race – potentially gifting City a boost in the hunt for his sought-after signature.
Which defender should Man City sign?
Looking to remedy our defensive issues this season, with Fernandinho forced into a centre-back role and unable to cover in midfield, signing a centre-back could be deemed a high priority for the Sky Blues.
Upamecano certainly fits the bill, averaging two tackles per 90 and completing 89% of his passes out from the back as per WhoScored.
Flocking to the news, many City supporters have expressed their wishes to sign the 21-year-old colossus – begging the club to ‘do it asap‘.

Just give us proper defender in terms of being good Laporte’s partner. Upa is quick, physical and they will communicate in French.
