Harry Maguire has emerged as Manchester City’s number one transfer target, according to the Mail Online.
The English domestic treble winners are on the lookout for a new centre-back following Vincent Kompany’s decision to move to Anderlecht as player-manager.
Maguire is Pep Guardiola’s preferred option, though he is likely to command a fee that exceeds the £75m that Liverpool paid for Virgil Van Dijk in January 2018.
Maguire moved to the King Power Stadium two years ago and has since racked up seventy-three appearances in all competitions, scoring five goals.
He has been capped eighteen times for England, with his one and only international goal so far coming in the World Cup quarter-final victory over Sweden last June.
Kompany leaves City after an eleven-year spell, during which time he played three hundred and sixty times in all competitions, scoring twenty goals and winning ten major honours.
