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‘.
