Manchester City Interested in Lyon defender

Manchester City Interested in  Lyon defender




Manchester City are reportedly interested in signing Lyon defender Mouctar Diakhaby.

City’s director of football Txiki Begiristain and assistant coach Mikel Arteta both went to watch the France under-21 star in action on Thursday, according to The Sun.


Pep Guardiola is currently without skipper Vincent Kompany, who continues to struggle with injury problems

Diakhaby, 20, fits the bill as City boss Pep Guardiola looks for a defender who can play and is quick on his feet.

Guardiola is still at least one centre-half short in his squad as Vincent Kompany struggles to stay fit, particularly after missing out on West Brom’s Jonny Evans.

City have been looking all over for suitable candidates, including Swansea and Wales U21 star Joe Rodon, but he would only be seen as cover.

Diakhaby seems more advanced if Guardiola pushes for a centre-half in the next window. And the fact he has picked up European experience is a plus.

And it seems the City could now be prepared to turn to 6ft 3in Diakhaby as a long term replacement
