Manchester City are close to reaching an agreement with Borussia Dortmund for defender, Manuel Akanji.
There is a valuation of around €18m for the defender as he is in the final year of his contract with the German club and City are optimistic that an agreement will be reached quickly.
The 27 year old is yet to make an appearance for Dortmund this season who will be happy to obtain some cash for him.
Manchester City’s defence has already been tested early this season and an addition to the defensive line is very welcome in the squad.
As the English champions seek their first ever European title, they will need to be sharp defensively as they are on the attack.
