Manchester City are ready to lunch a bid for Leicester City defender, Soyuncu. The Turkish defender has enjoyed a fine season with high flying Leicester City.

Manchester City have endured a poor season so far by their own standard, they are third in the table, and it looks like European competition is all they are left to fight for in the second half of the campaign. 

The Citizen have struggled in their backline this season, as first-team players have suffered from one form of injury or the other. Rodri and Fernandinho have been adopted as makeshift center defenders. Laporte and Jon Stones have both endured an injury-hit season, the later has not played since September. 

The departure of Vincent Kompany without adequate replacement has left City short of options in the back. It is evident they need a player who can fill the role.

City were after Harry Maguire in the summer as a replacement for the departing veteran, but they opted out of the deal, when it appeared it was too expensive.

It will be interesting to see how the pursuit of Soyuncu will go, as Leicester will be very difficult to transact with, given that they are direct rival to Manchester City in the race for the top 4.
