Leicester City have rejected Manchester City’s £38 million bid for Caglar Soyuncu, according to The Sun.
The Foxes are reportedly demanding £60 million for the Turkish international, but the outlet this is coming from, you would do well to believe that there is any truth to it.
The Citizens, however, are interested in him as well as Jonny Evans, which has been reported by some generally reliable sources before.
So it would not be a shock at all were City to actually come in with a bid sooner rather than later. After all, who do they have left to play at centre-back anyway.
Evans has been a target for the Citizens before. In fact, he was supposed to move to the Etihad Stadium from West Bromwich Albion in 2017; however, the Baggies kept rejecting all offers only to sell him for £3.5 million after being relegated from the top division.
We already knew that Leicester had landed a gem in Evans, but let’s be honest, he has been even better than we thought he would be. He is one of the reasons – if not the reason – behind Soyuncu’s rapid rise as well.
His experience and nous were always going to come in handy but this handy? Guardiola must be kicking himself for missing out (as can be said of Manchester United, who sold him years ago).
His side could do with someone of the mould because they really are lacking a genuine leader at the back. Leicester, meanwhile, seem to have plenty of them.
