Pep Guardiola and Manchester City are struggling defensively this season due to the lack of depth provided by the injuries of key defenders.

While City struggle, Leicester took advantage, leapfrogging them on the table.

A huge part of Leicester’s success is also the Citizens’ next target – Caglar Soyuncu.

According to The Times, Pep Guardiola wants to rebuild the squad, and the Turkish centre-back was one of the first requests.

The defender is famous for his on-ball skills. His presence saw Harry Maguire’s summer departure go unnoticed for the Foxes.

While it would be a shame to see him leave so early, Soyuncu looks like he’s destined for the greatest things.
