Pep Guardiola is said to be considering to break the bank for Leicester City defender Caglar Söyüncü.
While City has had one of the most impressive attacks in the league, questions have arisen from their defensive unit with Guardiola changing the entire defence in their win over Brighton on Saturday night.
Turkish media outlet Sozcu as relayed via Sport Witness now claims that City is willing to make a club-record bid of a sum of up to €80 million in order to prise the defender away from Leicester.
The 24-year-old has emerged as one of the Premier League’s most highly-rated defenders after signing for the Brendan Rodgers side from SC Freiburg in 2018.
After making only six league appearances in his debut season, the player has been one of the key figures of the club following the departure of defender Harry Maguire to Manchester United in the summer; his performance having seen him get linked to a number of clubs.
While City is desperate for a defender, questioned might be raised over the €80 million fees by the club fans with others urging the club to go for established players like Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly as they look for Aymeric Laporte partner in the comings season.
