Barcelona declare interest in Man City defender Aymeric Laporte
The Laliga team FC Barcelona are set to declare their interest in Man City defender Aymeric Laporte. Aymeric was linked with Barcelona before Euro 2020, though interest seemed to die during the competition with Barca said to possess no cash to check in more players. According to a report by Romero through Tribal Football, he said that Barca have not dropped their interest in the Spain international and will try to make another move this week or before the current window closes. Barca will need to sell before having the funds to satisfy the City’s valuation with the likes of Samuel Umtiti expected to leave the club to make space for the new arrival.
Aymeric who changed his nationality from France to Spain before EURO 2020 claimed not to be happy at the Etihad following less playing time due to Ruben Diaz’s arrival and John Stones suddenly form and would really like to play within the Laliga as he acclimatizes with the demands of Spanish football. Aside from Barcelona, the defender has been linked with a move to the English side Tottenham Spurs as part of the deal to take Harry Kane to Manchester Cit; Tottenham Spurs is currently in the marketplace for a center-back following the departure of Toby Alderweireld to Qatar club.
Aymeric Laporte was the only player at Euro 2020 to average more than 100 passes per game (115). Meanwhile, Tottenham fans hope for Laporte to be included during a deal for Harry Kane
